Bring Co-op to your front door

Big Bag Option


  • 2 limes, cut into wedges
  • 4 tsp Fairtrade caster sugar
  • 4 mint sprigs, leaves only, plus extra to garnish
  • 100ml Co-op white rum
  • 2 large handfuls of crushed ice
  • 50ml soda water


  1. Put the lime, sugar and most of the mint in a cocktail shaker or lidded jar and ‘muddle’ with the thin end of a wooden spoon until the lime has released all its juices and the sugar has dissolved (you can also do this in a separate glass, if you prefer)
  2. Add the rum and a handful of ice to the shaker, put the lid on and shake for 1-2 mins, until the outside of the shaker is cold
  3. Put the remaining ice and mint in two glasses, then strain the cocktail into them. Top up with soda water and garnish with the extra mint to serve
