Notes

Helpful tips
  • Use really fresh mint
  • If you don’t have a muddler, you can use the back of a wooden spoon. It takes longer but will still work
  • Use good quality rums
  • Make your own simple syrup instead of buying it – 1 cup white sugar to 1 cup water, boil for 5 minutes, let cool
  • Always use freshly squeezed lime
  • Do NOT use bottle lime juice as it is too sweet and acidic.
  • If you don't have both white and gold rums, you can use one or the other but do NOT use spiced rum.
