|1.||Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture.|
|2.||Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice and fill the glass with soda water. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge|
If you don't have a muddler, feel free to use the end of a rolling pin or the handle of a wooden spoon.
And now for the non alcoholic version...
