  • Total time: 10 minutes

Makes: 2

Ingredients

1 lime, halved
3-4 tbsp caster sugar, to taste
50g strawberries, washed and hulled, plus extra to serve
2 sprigs mint, leaves only, plus extra sprigs to serve
75ml white rum
100ml sparkling water
Ice, to serve
 

Method

1. Rub the rim of 2 tumblers with 1 of the lime halves then squeeze the rest of the lime juice into a bowl. Place 1 tsp of sugar in a small dish and dip the rims of the glasses in to coat. Set aside in the fridge.

2. Sprinkle the remaining sugar over the strawberries and mint and lightly crush with a wooden spoon to release the juice. Leave to stand for 5 minutes. Add the lime juice then whizz in a blender.

3. Place plenty of ice in the glasses and pour over the rum. Add the strawberry mix (strain, if preferred) and top up with sparkling water. Decorate with fresh mint and strawberries to serve.
