The following is adrink recipe from a model year photo shoot. The menu has a bit of Cuban flair, inspired by the Hemingway memorabilia, which was sometimes seen at the Compleat Angler, a favorite Hemingway haunt in the Bahamas. The recipes use fresh ingredients you are likely to have on your boat or suggest alternate ingredients, as well non-perishable items you can purchase when you provision your boat.
1 each -Fresh lime, cut into eight sections
To taste - Superfine sugar or regular granulated sugar. Superfine will dissolve more thoroughly
To taste - Fresh mint leaves, washed or dried mint leaves
To taste - Ice
To taste - Club soda
Squeeze a wedge of lime into the bottom of an empty glass. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar to taste (not too tart!) and stir well to dissolve. If using fresh mint, add about six mint leaves (or to taste) in the glass and "muddle" or bruise the leaves with the back of a spoon to release the oils. If using dried mint leaves, add to taste. Fill the glass with ice and then club soda. Garnish with another wedge of lime and a sprig of fresh mint.
