This is the first cocktail my friend Tobi learned to make, and also the reason one of my spoons looks like it got caught in a blender. It is a tasty and refreshing cocktail! Try adding and substituting other herbs, like Thai basil.

  • 1/2 lime, rinsed and cut into wedges
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 8 to 10 fresh mint leaves, rinsed
  • 2 ounces light rum
  • crushed ice (the blender is the tool for this)

Muddle the lime wedges, sugar and mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add a few ice cubes and the rum, and shake.

Pour into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice.
