  • highball glass (or other tall glass)


  • 1 oz fresh lime juice (or juice of 1/2 lime)
  • 1 tsp sugar (or 2 bar spoons full)
  • 2 medium fresh mint sprigs
  • 2 cups crushed ice (or enough to fill the glass)
  • tsp rum extract (non-alcoholic if needed)
  • 6 oz lime sparkling water (or enough to fill the glass)
  • 1 lime wedge


  • Add lime juice to a highball glass, then stir in sugar until it dissolves.
  • Give one sprig of mint a gentle slap in your palm (yep) to release its oils without bruising it too much. Gently rub the mint around the rim of the glass, then add it to the glass.
  • Fill the glass with crushed ice. (If you don't have crushed ice, run about 4 cups of ice through a blender until it is just crushed.) Add the rum extract and sparkling water, then gently stir with a spoon to mix.
  • Garnish with a lime wedge and another sprig of mint.
