Saving Grace

This weekend was a bit tricky. Thank goodness for this...

Need: Limes, Rum, fresh mint, simple syrup (boil water, mix in 2 parts sugar one part water, infuse with mint leaves, cool), sugar, club soda, watermelon (optional) , ice

I like mine really sour so you may have to adjust amount of lime.

1. Mash up 3 -4 slices of lime + small handful of mint leaves + pinch of sugar (cubes of watermelon if you'd like).
2. Stir in 2 tbs of simple syrup
3. Drop in a shot of rum
4. Add ice, stir
5. Top off with club soda, gently stir

Other versions to try (in place of watermelon):
- cucumber + hot cayenne pepper (or tobasco I guess would work too)
- mango
- raspberries
