    Rather than open a bottle of wine on a Saturday night, I've had my boyfriend making these for me, so thought I'd share with recipe! They're really tasty and I've found that I drink them without the alcohol most of the time, as you still feel like you're being naughty by drinking a cocktail!

    Ingredients:
    Sweetener
    Fresh mint leaves
    Lime
    Soda Water
    Ice (preferably crushed)

    Throw a couple of teaspoons of sweetener, a wedge of lime (with the juice squeezed into the glass first) and a small handful of fresh mint leaves into a glass. Add a measure or two of rum if required. Top up with soda water, leaving at least a third of the glass free for the ice. Mash all the ingredients together - the more voilent you are with the mint, the stronger the flavour. Top up with the ice, mix it all together and drink through a straw - a fab, refreshing cocktail!

    The only syns are from the rum - which is 4 syns for 35ml.

    The best thing about these is that as all the other ingredients are free, you can adapt to taste - I like mine really sour, so add extra lime. Taste as you go and you'll figure out what you like best! :)
