- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 4 to 5 leaves fresh spearmint, plus more for garnish
- 3 lime wedges, plus more for garnish
- Ice, for chilling

Muddle or mash together the sugar, spearmint and lime wedges in a tall glass. Add the ice, pour in the rum and top with the coconut water. Stir well and garnish with a lime wedge and spearmint leaf.
