Cucumber-Basil Mojito

6 basil leaves, roughly chopped

5 1-inch pieces of peeled cucumber, one of which is finely diced

3 tsp simple syrup (or finely granulated sugar)

2.5 oz dark rum

Splash of lime juice

Splash of club soda

Slice of cucumber, for garnish

Put basil and syrup or sugar in the bottom of a glass. Muddle the basil with the back of a spoon or the side of a measuring cup — you just want to bruise it to release its flavor. Fill the glass with ice and add rum, lime juice, cucumber, and soda. Stir to blend, and garnish with a cucumber slice. Makes 1 drink.
