180 ml dark rum (Walton uses Kraken Black Spiced Rum) 1 cup (firmly packed) mint leaves 2 lemons, thinly sliced To top up: soda water and ice   Ginger syrup 75 gm ginger, coarsely chopped 250 gm caster sugar 125 ml (½ cup) lemon juice 15 gm runny honey ½ long red chilli, seeds removed, coarsely chopped 500 ml (2 cups) filtered water

Method

  • For ginger syrup, process ingredients in a blender until smooth, strain through a muslin-lined sieve and refrigerate in a sterilised container until required. Makes 1 litre.
  • 02
  • Combine 250ml ginger syrup in a jug with rum, mint and lemon and use a rolling pin or muddler to muddle slightly. Top up with ice cubes and soda water to taste and serve.
