10 fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoon sugar
Ice cubes as desired
200 ml Sprite
Fresh mint leaves to garnish
Chop the mint leaves. Cut lemon into small wedges and remove the seeds carefully. Keep one aside for garnish.
Crush mint leaves, sugar and lemon wedges in a tall glass using a wooden spoon for lemons to release all their juice and to blend in the flavors. Crushing of mint and lemon is referred to as muddling and is generally done with a muddler.
Add ice and top up with Sprite and mix well. Garnish with lemon slices and mint leaves. Serve chilled.
