Bartenders cringe when you order this drink, but I still love it. Perhaps I haven't had to make enough in rapid time to hate creating this cocktail. To me this is the perfect cocktail for your summer pool party to cool off! Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Rum.
2 oz. Rum
1 oz. Turbinado Simple Syrup
Mint (handful of leaves)
3 drops of Grapefruit Bitters (I like to use Fee Brothers Bitters)
In a small tin shaker add rum. simple syrup and bitters and top off with ice. Slap the mint in your hand until you can smell it about a foot away from your nose and add to the tin. Slice the lime, squeeze the juice into the tin then add the slices into the tin and shake vigorously until tin is very cold to the touch. Pour into your favorite tall glass and top off with champagne.
