Boston Cooler

It's a good time of year for a rum cooler. The Boston Cooler is really a fine and simple thing. My speculation is that the drink is considered a Boston cocktail because of the city's colonial rum drinking heritage. This is pretty much the same thing as a Rum Collins, but the specification of light rum makes all the difference, I guess.
  • 2 oz. white rum
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • sparkling water
  • lemon twist
Combine rum, juice and sugar in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Collins glass full of fresh ice. top with sparkling water and garnish with the twist.
