This is Cuba's signature libation. A frequent visitor to the tropics, Ernest Hemingway named this his beverage of choice.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice in a small mortar bowl; crush mint using a pestle. Transfer mint mixture to a tall glass.

Step 2

Add rum, and stir; add ice cubes. Add a splash of club soda.

Step 3

Note: If you don't have a mortar and pestle, simply use the back of a spoon to crush the mint leaves in your glass with the sugar and lime juice.

Light and refreshing for a hot summer day! I grow my own mint on my deck just so I can make these.
