1—Fill a medium sized tumbler glass with a lot of ice.
2— Add 2 shots of rum(the prettier the label the better).
3—Add 1 shot simple syrup.
4—Plop a quarter of a fresh lime into the glass. Squeeze another quarter into the mixture.
5—Muddle 5 large fresh mint leaves in your fingers, tearing a few, then place in glass.
6—Top with club soda, stir well, and drape a mint sprig over the glass for a bit of flair.
