Two tablespoons of white sugar? Yes please:) While this is a bit on the sweet side I did enjoy it. I can't say that I'll make it again but I enjoyed it while it lasted. I used bottled lime juice so I'd imagine fresh would even kick it up a notch. CHEERS Allrecipes! Read More

Yummy!! Nice base for creating...I didn't have white rum or club soda...so used Cherry Rum and Gingerale and less sugar. I also added 4 fresh blackberries when I muddled the lime wedges & mint.....WOW!! Read More

Great but when I make again I will decrease the sugar just a bit. Used 3/4 of a lime cut into quarters instead of 1/2 and muddled the mint thoroughly. Delicious drink! Read More

This is a fun and refreshing drink to make. I only had Spiced Rum instead of the light rum but it turned out fine. I don't eat a lot of sugar so I only used 1 tablespoon. It was still tangy and refreshing. Read More
