Extra Tips
*To muddle the mint against the bottom of the glass, use just enough pressure to release oils from the mint without tearing it. The back surface of a wooden spoon can serve as muddler as well.
*Use a lime squeezer to fully extract the lime's juice.
*To make simple syrup, dissolve an equal amount of granulated sugar in boiling water and then allow syrup to cool. Store in a clean bottle in a cool place.
Mix ingredients in a shaker over ice. Serve in a chilled sugar rimmed snifter glass or martini glass.
