Hey, those look good! You make them the right way, or do you use mixer? =)

Fresh mint, fresh lime, and sugar all smashed together by hand. =)

Did you use rum or Cacha├ža? :-) Looks better than a G&T to me.

There's a drink I've never had. What's in it other than peppermint & rum?

here's a recipe:

Take one lime, cut it into pieces. Add a handful of fresh peppermint and about 5 tablespoons of sugar. (more or less, according to your taste) Smash all of these things together for a while. Pour in about a cup of white rum, stir. Strain into two tall glasses over ice. Fill up the remainder of the glasses with seltzer. Garnish with a bit of lime and mint and enjoy!

(we made up this recipe. I don't know if it's "correct" or not - but it's very good!)
