This drink calls for two rounds of vigorous shaking. The first shake, without ice, helps foam the egg white and combine the ingredients. The second shake, with the added ice, builds more foam and chills the mix.
2 ounces light rum
1/2 ounce triple sec
1/2 ounce lime juice
1 teaspoon simple syrup
1 egg white
Place all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Add several ice cubes to the shaker and shake vigorously for another 20 seconds. Strain into highball glass filled with ice. Garnish with a mint sprig.
