Method

 
First, make your 'tea' using the cinnamon, cardamom, lemongrass, and mint and the boiling water.

Leave to steep for 5 minutes. Then strain, add in the cool water and leave to cool completely before filling up your glass with ice, and adding in the rum, and a squeeze of lime and extra mint if you like.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
