- 60 ml or 2 oz white rum
- 60 ml or 2 oz club soda
- 15 ml or ½ oz lime juice (about ½ a lime)
- 6–7 mint leaves
- 3 blackberries
- 22 ml or ¾ oz simple syrup (adjust as needed; berries vary greatly in their sweetness)
- 250 ml or 1 c ice
- Muddle the lime juice, mint leaves, blackberries and simple syrup in a Boston shaker. Add the rum and ice and shake well (about 10 seconds).
- Pour the contents into a glass, top with two ounces of club soda and stir. You don’t need to strain the beverage but may wish to let it settle for a couple of minutes before serving to allow the clear colour of the drink to emerge. Garnish with mint leaves and a blackberry.
