What's even better is that you can easily enjoy this drink with or without alcohol, making it a great drink option for minors, or anyone wanting to avoid alcohol. Get ready to wow everyone with your hosting skills, while you sip on this fresh, fruity summer cocktail!
- 1 handful of raspberries (about 5)
- 1/2 of a lime, cut into wedges
- 5-7 mint leaves
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- 2 oz white rum
- soda water
In a sturdy glass add you raspberries, lime wedges, mint leaves and simple syrup. Using a wooden muddler, or the back of a spoon, muddle your ingredients, extracting juices from the limes, mint leaves and raspberries.
Once muddled, add ice and rum, then top off the glass with soda water. Add a reusable or paper straw to stir your drink and add fresh raspberries and mint leaves to garnish. Serve and enjoy!
