Directions

Carefully press mint leaves into the bottom of the glass with the back of a wooden spoon to release their oils (do not tear leaves).
Mix mint, crushed berries, lime juice and sugar syrup in a 12 oz. highball glass.
Fill glass with crushed ice (cubed ice will not work).
Stir well until the ice is reduced by 1/3 and then top with more crushed ice, stirring until the glass begins to frost on the outside.
Pour in soda water and stir again.
Rum and grenadine
Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint
