Yields 2 drinks, but be prepared to make many, many rounds
10-12 mint leaves
4 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons water
2 cups crushed ice
6 oz light rum (I like Bacardi)
- In a Ninja Blender (brand, not characteristic), juice your two limes and add your mint leaves. Crush the mint leaves with a wooden spoon or a muddler.
- In a small saucepan over medium, combine your sugar and water. Cook until sugar dissolves, stirring as needed. Don't let it boil.
- Add sugar syrup and 1 cup crushed ice. Pour 6oz light rum over the ice. Add the second cup of ice. Cover and blend thoroughly.
- Pour into two glasses. Feel refreshed. Repeat steps 1-4 until the rum is gone.
