1 1/2ozSoda Water
1/2ozChambord or other raspberry liqueuroptional
In a doubled old fashioned glass, add the sugar cube and syrup. Tear the mint leaves into 2-4 pieces and add to the glass. Muddle the everything together until the sugar cube is fully broken down, and the mint is in small pieces.
Add in the rum, and squeeze the lemon juice into the glass. Add ice until about 3/4 full, and then add the soda water.
Pour the entire drink into another glass, then back into the original. Repeat until the syrup doesn't stick to the bottom.
If using Chambord, place a spoon upside down over the glass, and slowly pour the liqueur over the spoon so it falls into the glass and floats on top.
Garnish, if desired, with a sprig of fresh mint or some fresh raspberries. Serve immediately with a straw.
If you don't have raspberry syrup, you can use regular simple syrup and muddle 2-3 fresh raspberries with the mint, or you can make your own.
Since these are muddled in the glass, they don't batch well. However, you can make a bunch at once in an assembly line style easily.
If you don't have a muddler, you can use anything with a flat wide bottom, like a wooden spoon.
