I fancied something different to drink... something alcoholic of course and was very excited when I saw this cocktail over at My Tasty Treasures. I just knew that I had to try it ~ thanks Donna.

While I must say it was delicious and would be very refreshing on a hot summers day there is no way that you could drink too many of them..... but we will see how I go.. wink wink!!


Serves: 4
Points per serve: 3

1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 bunch fresh mint leaves
1 cup Bacardi Rum
3 cups soda water
juice of 1 lime
lime slices

Place ice, caster sugar and mint leaves in a jug or pitcher. Mix around to bruise the leaves and also to start disolving the sugar.

Add rum and soda water. Mix well to dissolve the remaining sugar.

Add lime slices and serve.
