- A few leaves fresh basil, plus a pretty wee sprig for garnish
- 2 teaspoons white sugar (organic preferred for flavor)
- half a lime
- 1 jigger good quality white rum
- club soda
In a tall glass, muddle the tender parts of the basil leaves briefly with the sugar. Squeeze in the lime and agitate until sugar is completely dissolved. Add a few ice cubes and the rum and stir. Top up with club soda and decorate with basil.
Makes one refreshing libation.
