I am clinging on to summer for dear life. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the fall, I just hate that season whose name we won’t speak that follows it.
I figure if I keep posting summer recipes I can hang on a little longer.
And we can thank our friend Mike’s mom, Mrs. Truckenmiller, for this one. I forget the exact measurements, but this is the gist of it:
(Makes four small drinks. If you’re my kind of people you’ll double this. Or triple it. No judgement.)
several fresh mint leaves
6 oz rum
2 cups club soda
4 oz simple syrup (2 parts sugar 1 part water, mixed over heat to dissolve the sugar)
4 oz mango nectar
Muddle the mint, mix all ingredients together and serve over ice. And party at your friend’s lake houses until you’re absolutely forced to take refuge inside.
