Shake with small ice cubes. Pour unstrained into a tall tiki glass. Top off with crushed ice. Garnish with a mint sprig (don't forget to spank it.)
The 1/4 oz. of Simple syrup adds a little body and is not necessary if you want a dryer drink.
And please don't neglect to take a big whiff of the garnish as you sip. I like to clip it directly to my straw.
Bastille Day falls on the weekend of Tiki Kon 2013. Comment fortuite!
