Rhum drink I created while working at the Fontainebleau
in South Beach
, Miami. To make one at home...
1 1/2 white tequila, 1/2 creme de cassis, 2 lime wedges, 12 fresh mint leaves, 3-6 oz 7-Up soda, 1 tbsp brown sugar.
Muddle sugar, mint and squeezed lime wedges in mixing tin until mixture smells like spearmint gum. Fill with ice, add tequila and cassis, shake until the tin is icey to the touch. Pour into a collins glass, top with 7-up and garnish with a sugarcane stick and fresh mint.
