Try adding 1 oz of Mango

Try adding 1 oz of Mango Puree and a splash of Ginger Liqueur or muddle with a little fresh ginger for a delicious twist.

I use the same rum:lime

I use the same rum:lime juice:simple syrup ratio as a daiquiri (2oz:1oz:1/2oz) and (lightly) muddle about eight mint leaves. I use 1 to 1.5 ounces of club soda -- don't want to water it down too much.
