Put a heaping teaspoon of sugar in
the bottom of a tall (at least 12 oz. glass).
Add two or three mint sprigs and muddle it around with a splash of water
until the sugar dissolves. Squeeze
the juice of a half of a medium (between golf and tennis ball size) lime into the glass.
Use a lemon reamer as pictured below to get all the juice.
Throw in the squeezed lime rind.
Pour in two ounces of rum, stir and then fill glass with ice.
Fill the glass with chilled soda water.
Drink should be not too sweet. Lime
and sugar should be sort of equal in taste.
