  • Serves 1
What You'll Need
  • 6 mint leaves, torn
  • 2 ounces rum (traditionally Trinidadian or Guyanese -- we like Banks 5 Island, which is a blend of both of those and 3 others.)
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice
  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • Angostura bitters
  1. Place torn mint in the bottom of a glass and muddle gently.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, top up with crushed ice, and swizzle vigorously until the glass frosts (about 15 to 20 seconds).
  3. Top up with additional fresh crushed ice to mound the glass, and float liberally with bitters. The drink should have a clear barrier between red on top (bitters), white (rum), and green (mint).
