mint leaves, torn
ounces rum (traditionally Trinidadian or Guyanese -- we like Banks 5 Island, which is a blend of both of those and 3 others.)
ounce lime juice
ounce simple syrup
- Place torn mint in the bottom of a glass and muddle gently.
- Add the rest of the ingredients, top up with crushed ice, and swizzle vigorously until the glass frosts (about 15 to 20 seconds).
- 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).
