Muddle the Mint:

  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint leaves to release their essential oils.

Mix the Ingredients:

  • Add the lime juice, simple syrup, and tequila to the shaker. Fill the shaker with ice and shake until cold.


  • Place ice into a glass and strain the drink into the glass.
  • Top off the glass with soda water.
  • Garnish with additional mint leaves.


  • Mint Leaves: Muddle gently to avoid tearing the leaves too much, which can make the drink bitter.
  • Tequila: Use a high-quality tequila for the best flavor.
  • Simple Syrup: Adjust the sweetness to your preference by adding more or less simple syrup.
