First you want to make sure you have everything needed for this mocktail. This should include a bar spoon, strainer and shaker, jigger, highball glass, ice, raspberry simple syrup, lime juice, muddler and club soda.
Fill the glass all the way up to the top with ice.
Toss 3 to 5 mint leaves into the bottom of the cocktail shaker.
Add 1 oz of raspberry simple syrup into the shaker with the mint leaves.
Take your muddler and gently muddle the mint and simple syrup together. The key to muddling is to crush the leaves enough so that they release their juices, but not so much that each completely rip them apart.
Add 1 oz of lime juice into the cocktail shaker. Then, toss a handful of ice in the shaker.
Cover the shaker up with its lid. Shake it up for around 15 or 20 seconds or until the shaker becomes icy on the outside.
Remove the shaker lid and place the Hawthorne strainer over top. Then, strain the liquid from the shaker into your highball glass.
Grab your club soda and pour it directly into the glass. You should fill the glass the rest of the way with club soda. This is typically going to be around 4 to 5 oz.
Finally, place the bar spoon into the glass. Stir everything together so that it is mixed well.
If desired, take a sprig of mint and place it on the top of the drink.
