Mix this classic cocktail for a party using fresh mint, white rum, sugar, zesty lime and cooling soda water. Play with the quantities to suit your taste.


  1. juice of 1 lime
  2. 1 tsp granulated sugar
  3. small handful mint leaves, plus extra sprig to serve
  4. 60ml white rum
  5. soda water, to taste


  1. Muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a small jug, crushing the mint as you go – you can use the end of a rolling pin for this. Pour into a tall glass and add a handful of ice.
  2. Pour over the rum, stirring with a long-handled spoon. Top up with soda water, garnish with mint and serve.
