The Purim Pucker

This drink was inspired by an iced mint lemonade I tasted on my most recent trip to Israel. I’ve recreated the drink here with rum for an added kick. It is light, cool, and refreshing — perfect for a spring celebration.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ ounces Flor de Caña rum
  • 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ounce Mr & Mrs T Sweet & Sour Mix
  • 2 tablespoons frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh mint, plus more whole leaves for garnish
  • 5 ice cubes
  • Cold club soda

Directions

In a blender, blend together rum, fresh lemon juice, sweet and sour mix, lemonade concentrate, chopped fresh mint, and ice cubes until ice is fully crushed. Pour into a chilled highball glass. Top off glass with cold club soda. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and serve.
