8 fresh mint leaves 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice 1 teaspoon superfine sugar 2 ounces white rum 2-3 ounces seltzer 4-6 fresh raspberries
- Place mint leaves, lime juice and sugar in a highball glass (something tall and narrow is perfect). Using the straight end of a wooden spoon, gently press on leaves to release flavor (“muddle” is the official term).
- Fill glass with ice cubes. Pour in rum. Top off with seltzer. Drop in raspberries, and sip!
