Drink: Cool Down With a Fresh Twist on a Classic

Spearmint Mojito

1 ½ oz. Corralejo Blanco Tequila
½ oz. Marie Brizard Creme de Cassis
2 lime wedges
12 fresh mint leaves
3–6 oz. lemon lime soda
1 Tbsp. brown sugar

Muddle sugar, mint and squeezed lime wedges in a shaker until mixture smells like spearmint gum. Fill with ice, add tequila and cassis and shake until the shaker is icy to the touch. Pour into a Collins glass, top with soda, and garnish with a sugarcane stick and fresh mint.
