Replacing some of the mint with cucumber adds a whole extra dimension to this cool Cuban favorite.
1 1/2 ounces 10 Cane Rum
4 slices peeled seedless cucumber
6 to 8 mint leaves
1/2 lime, cut into wedges
1 packet Equal
Chilled ginger ale
In a tall glass, muddle together the cucumber, limes, mint and Equal. Add to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add rum and shake. Fill glass with crushed ice, return mixture to glass and top with ginger ale. Garnish with a slice of cucumber.
