No one can resist Havana's famous highball. Fresh mint and lime, shaken up hard with gum syrup and light rum.

Our instructions forego muddling, as we've found a hard shake with a few cubes suffices to extract the mint flavor, while speeding up the drink making process.


  • ½ oz Classic Gum Syrup
  • ¾ oz lime juice
  • 2 oz light rum
  • soda water
  • 6-8 mint leaves 


  • Add all ingredients except soda to a cocktail shaker
  • Add 2-3 cubes of ice and shake for 10 seconds
  • Strain into a highball glass filled with crushed ice
  • Top with 1-2 oz club soda and stir
  • Garnish with a fresh sprig of mint


  • highball


  • mint sprig
