1½ ounces white rum
¼ cup packed mint leaves (about 15), plus a sprig for garnish
2 teaspoons superfine sugar (see Tip)
½ lime, cut into 4 pieces
¼ cup club soda
1 cup crushed ice (from 2 cups ice cubes)
Place rum, mint, sugar and lime in a 1-cup measuring cup. Muddle all the ingredients with a muddler or the handle end of a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved, the mint is well bruised and the lime has released its juice. Pour into a glass, stir in club soda and then add crushed ice. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig, if desired.
Tip: Superfine sugar is sugar that dissolves instantly. It is available in the baking section of most supermarkets, but if you can't find it, process regular granulated sugar in a food processor or blender until very finely ground.
