5 Minutes of Rum episode 13: Silver Dominican Rum, Ron Matusalem Platino, and the Mojito.
Into a 14oz Collins glass, add:
1 ounce demerara sugar syrup
1 1/2 ounces lime juice (fresh!)
6 fresh mint leaves
Gently muddle this together in the glass. The goal is similar to spanking the mint - you want to break some cells to release the mint's oil but not shred it.
2 ounces Dominican Republic silver rum (Ron Matusalem Platino)
Stir to combine.
Fill 3/4 of the way with ice, stir until glass frosts.
Top with soda. Stir again to combine.
