  • 12-15 Mint Leaves
  • 1oz Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 1oz Simple Syrup
  • Crushed Ice
  • 1 1/2 oz Light Rum
  • Tony Abou-Ganim Pecan Chicory Bitters

Modern Mixologist Bar Tools Used:

Start off squeezing 1oz Fresh Lime Juice into a high ball glass. Balance that by adding 1oz of Simple Syrup, then add Crushed Ice. Add in 1.5oz of a light-bodied rum. Use a swizzle stick(or spoon!), and swizzle the drink by working the stem between your palms back and forth! The drink will frost and foam, add some more crushed ice and give it a quick, final swizzle! Then top it off with some Tony Abou-Ganim Pecan Chicory Bitters, garnish with fresh mint, and enjoy!
