Powdered sugar or sugar syrup is mixed with muddled mint leaves and lemon wedges. Crushed ice or ice cubes are added. Required amount of club soda is added and garnished with mint leaves.

Tips:

1. Sugar syrup can also be added. To prepare sugar syrup take 2 tsp of sugar and 2 tbsp of water in a vessel. Allow the sugar to melt and boil for one minute. Now the sugar syrup is ready to add. Half tsp of sugar is added to muddle the mint helps. Texture of Sugar helps to muddle the mint leaves. Later prepared sugar syrup is added instead of powdered sugar.

2. Crushed ice or ice cubes can be used. Quantities can be adjusted according to individual choice.
