1.5 ounces of simple syrup
about 3 fresh strawberries
about 4-5 fresh spearmint sprigs (chopped if you prefer smaller mint pieces in your cocktail)
2 ounces of light rum
In a chilled glass, muddle the simple syrup, strawberries, and mint leaves together. Squeeze the juice from the lime into the glass, add the rum and stir well. Fill glass with ice and top with soda water. Garnish with mint sprigs and strawberry slices. Makes 1 drink.
