For the sugar I used recipe #53926. Which I placed in the glass with the mint leaves and then muddled them adding ice and rest of ingredients. I did squeeze some freeze lime in it! Thanks.

I think it could use a little more rum but I like a stiff drink. Easy to drink toomuch because you don't realize your drinking alcohol. The mint leaves get stuck in your mouth, but you get used to that after the first one!
