Ingredients

> 2 inch piece fresh ginger
> 2 jalapeños
> 1 cup sugar
> 3 limes
> 1/2 cup mint
> 1 cup white rum
> 2 cups sparkling water

Steps

1
Slice the ginger and jalapeños. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the sugar and 1 cup water to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar, about 5 min total. Remove from heat and add ginger and jalapeños; let cool at room temperature, about 1 hour.
2
Juice 2 limes; cut the third into wedges. In a cocktail shaker or bowl, combine the juice, lime wedges and mint leaves. Remove the ginger from the sugar syrup. Using a garlic press, squeeze the ginger juice over the lime and mint. Using a wooden spoon, lightly crush and mix the ingredients to release the flavors. Divide the ginger-lime-mint mixture among 4 tall glasses.
3
Strain the remaining syrup through a wire-mesh sieve and add 1 tbsp ginger-jalapeño syrup to each glass. Divide rum and sparkling water among glasses, fill with ice cubes and serve.
