Episode 13: Ron Matusalem Platino

5 Minutes of Rum episode 13: Silver Dominican Rum, Ron Matusalem Platino, and the Mojito. 

Collins glass (14 oz.)


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.
