This classic rum cocktail highlights the freshness of mint.

Makes 4

6     tablespoons (3 ounces) freshly squeezed lime juice
12     teaspoons (2 ounces) granulated sugar
8-10 fresh sprigs of mint, plus more for garnish
¾     cup (6 ounces) white rum
3     cups (750 ml) ice
6     tablespoons (3 ounce) club soda

1 Place the lime juice, sprigs of mint and sugar into a highball glass.  Muddle or mash the mint using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon to release the flavour.
