Instructions
  1. Roll the lime on the counter, cut it crosswise and juice half of it in a nice, tall tumbler
  2. Add the brown sugar and stir lightly until the sugar is dissolved in the lime juice
  3. Add the mint leaves and crush them gently on the bottom of the tumbler using the flat end of a muddler; try not to destroy them, just let the scented oils floe into the juice
  4. Crush the ice to taste (if it’s not already crushed) and add it into the tumbler
  5. Add the rum and fill with soda water up to ~1/2cm or 1/4 inch under the tumbler edge, then gently stir for 10-15 seconds
  6. Garnish the Mojito with a mint sprig and a wedge of lime and serve immediately with a straw
