Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Serves: 1

Ingredients

  • Sprite cold drink or any simple syrup: ½ of a glass
  • Soda water: ½ of a glass
  • Mint leaves: fresh 10 leaves, removed from the stems
  • Lemon: ¼ of a medium sized lemon, cut into thin circles or 3-4 pieces.
  • Sugar: 1 teaspoon
  • Ice Cubes: 2-3

Method

  • In a glass, add mint leaves, sugar, lemon cut pieces.
  • Using a muddler, rolling pin or wooden spatula, muddle the mint leaves.
  • Do not shred or crush or mince the leaves. The leaves should remain whole, crumpled and maybe with a few tears. The purpose of muddling is to release the fragrant and tasty oils in the leaves.
  • Pour soda water and Sprite/syrup and fill the glass.
  • Crush the ice cubes roughly and add in the glass.
  • Serve.
