I'm trying this tonight. But ... a 'dash' of sugar?
I guess I'll work it out!

Ok, quick question - so you're chilling an OF, rinsing it, lightly muddling mint and sugar (a pinch, not a dash perhaps) in the bottom. Then you're stirring everything else and straining it over the mint/sugar? I'd imagine this will lead to undissolved sugar in the bottom of the glass. If so, can I clarify the instructions to reflect this? Thanks, Zachary
