  1. 1 bunch fresh mint, divided
  2. 4 tsp (20 mL) superfine sugar
  3. 4 limes, washed and halved crosswise
  4. ice cubes
  5. chilled soda water


  1. Add 8 to 10 mint leaves and 1 tsp (5 mL) sugar to each of 4 tall glasses; using muddler, smash and grind until mint is fragrant.
  2. Squeeze juice of 1 lime into each glass and stir. Drop 1 of the squeezed half-limes into each glass. Add ice cubes; top with soda water and garnish with sprigs of mint.
