Ah ha! Thank you for the answer, David! Getting "Cuban mint" must be difficult. If spearmint is close, then I guess that's what I'd try. Maybe next summer.

I could never find Cuban mint. However. spearmint works great. I also use peppermint.

I have to ask: What kind of mint? There are so many varieties - some of which turn my stomach (I've tried them in drinks), and others that are awesome like spearmint.

Sounds great, I don't have a sweet tooth so will try Fizzy water (agua con gas)!

I left out the sugar (too sweet) and used Sprite and it was excellent. But who has time to let the mix rest for a few hours? hehe

You can also try Perrier instead of 7up.
