Mint, lime and sparkling water bring a freshness that can’t be beat. When made properly, the rum is only slightly noticeable making this cocktail a dangerous concoction for sipping away the afternoon.

1/2 ounce (15 ml) lime juice
10 mint leaves muddled with 1/4 teaspoon sugar
2-1/2 ounces (75 ml) light rum
