12 mint leaves
juice from 2 limes
4cups club soda- chilled
about 4 shots of rum (to taste)
2 cups ice cubes
I prefer to juice the limes and crush the mint in it, the day before, to really blend the flavors.
then, just prior to serving, I remove the mint and add fresh to the pitcher for garnish.
In a pitcher add lime juice, sugar and mint. crush the mint to release the mint oil.
Add the rum, stir, and let stand about 15 minutes.
Add the ice cubes and club soda, stir and serve in a glass filled with ice. garnished with a lime wedge and mint sprig.
