- 2 sticks lemon grass
- 4 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 6 sprigs fresh mint, leaves picked
- 2 limes, cut into wedges
- 100 ml good-quality rum
- 1 large handful crushed ice, to serve
- soda water, to serve
Finely chop the base of each stick of lemon grass and divide between two tall glasses. Split the sugar and mint leaves between them, then crush with a muddler or the end of a rolling pin to release all the flavours. Add the lime wedges, bash up the mixture a little more, then pour 50ml of rum into each one. Fill the glasses with crushed ice and top up with soda.
