Place the pieces of citrus and the sugar in the bottom of a pitcher. Using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, crush
the fruits to release the oils
and juice from the rind. When you have some nice juice in there and the sugar
begins to dissolve, add the liquor
and stir to combine. Fill lowball glasses with ice cubes and pour the cocktail
over the ice. Do not remove the pieces of crushed fruit. Garnish with mint
. Use fresh sugarcane sticks as stirrers, if desired.
