Bymark's signature drink from head bartender Matt Bryan is a winner. To make sugar syrup (which dissolves in cocktails more easily that granulated sugar) bring one cup sugar and one cup water to the boil and cook about 5 minutes. Cool. Refrigerate up to one month.
Makes one drink
1. Place pineapple, lime pieces, mint and sugar syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Muddle mixture about 5 times. (If you do not have a muddler, use an upside down handle of a cleaver or fat wooden spoon). Add enough ice to fill about 3/4 of the shaker. Add rum, Triple Sec and lime juice. Cover and shake until cold.
2. Pour mixture into a 14 oz glass (do not strain) with a little fresh ice. Add as much soda water as desired.
