Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 cocktail

Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • ½ ounce lime juice (½ oz lime juice usually = juice from ½ a lime)
  • 5 fresh mint leaves (+ more for garnish)
  • ½ cup ice
  • 3 ounces white rum
  • 6.8 ounces ginger beer (6.8 oz usually = 1 can)
Shop Ingredients on Jupiter

Instructions
 

  • Cut your lime in half, squeezing the juice from one half into a highball glass, and setting aside the other half for garnish.
  • Add about 5 mint leaves into the glass and muddle for about 30 seconds to release the flavor of the mint.
  • Add ice, rum, and ginger beer and stir.
  • Garnish with a lime wedge and more mint and serve ice cold!

Pro Tips

  • It’s best not to use a shaker for this cocktail. You won’t want to lose the crisp carbonation of the gingerbeer.
  • I like to really taste the rum, so I add two full jiggers worth of it to each drink, but if you want the rum to be less prevalent, start with one. You can always add more!
  • 1 fluid ounce = 2 tablespoons
