|from Ikea, $4.49|
Fill a highball with ice,
add 1 1/2 oz. of white rum
squeeze two lime wedges and drop in
Tear 6 mint leaves into bits and drop in
add 1 oz. of Ikea Elderflower syrup
Top glass with a shaker tin, or pint glass & shake
Top off highball with soda
The most refreshing beach drink I could ever imagine. It's light and
fresh, and not too fruity. Two of them and I am a happy beach bum. Except in my case I substitute highball for plastic cup and bendy straw. So much better that sipping beer in a bikini. Yeech!
Helpful hint for beach:
Freeze the mint into ice cubes
Good news, too: mint grows like a weed and thrives in the full sun and "rainy season" conditions of our patio.
