  • 02
  • Fill with crushed ice, add rum and give the whole thing a good stir, lifting the mint up from the bottom and through the drink.

“I used to make this drink by the thousand in a famous Covent Garden rum and tequila bar. The biggest seller in summer, it tastes like a sunny garden party. Always put your mint in first, then the limes and raspberries, then the sugar. With the other ingredients cushioning it, your mint will release its fresh flavour but not get smashed up in the muddling bit.” - Jason Crawley
