    Mix It Up

    Add the sugar and 6-8 mint leaves into your glass. Add a little bit of club soda as well.

    Muddle

    A muddler is a small pestle-like device with a flat bottom that is used to crush ingredients and release flavours. If you have one handy, use it to mash the mint leaves at the bottom of the glass. If you do not have one handy, use a regular spoon and press the leaves to the bottom of your glass and rub back and forth for a similar effect.

    Squeeze and Drop
