Ingredients
  

  • 6-9 fresh mint leaves
  • 4 1/2" thick slices of fresh cucumber
  • 1 oz. honey simple syrup
  • 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 oz. silver rum
  • soda water (to top it off)

Instructions
 

  • Cut the cucumber slices down into smaller chunks.  Throw all of the cucumber chunks and a small handful of mint into a cocktail shaker.  Muddle them like you mean it for about thirty seconds, until there's significant cucumber juice and the mint leaves are very smashed and torn.
  • Add honey simple syrup, lime juice, and rum to the cocktail shaker.  Fill it with a handful of ice, cap it, and shake vigorously for at least fifteen seconds.  Break that ice up and crush that mint and cucumber even more.
  • Fill an old fashioned glass with a handful of crushed ice.  Strain the drink over the ice, and top it with a bit of soda water for effervescence.  
  • Garnish with a fresh cucumber slice and fresh mint leaves.  Enjoy!
