"In India, we constantly serve sweet lime juice, and sometimes make a salty version too," Padma Lakshmi says. In this variation, Padma adds dark rum, cilantro and ginger, which gives the drink a little spice.

  1. 2 cups ice, plus more for serving
  2. Lime slices and cilantro leaves, for garnish
  3. 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
  4. 2 cups dark rum
  5. 1/2 cup sugar
  6. 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  7. 2/3 cup water
  1. In a small saucepan, bring the water, sugar and ginger to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat for 5 minutes. Strain the syrup into a large pitcher, pressing hard on the ginger. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Stir in the lime juice, rum and the 2 cups of ice. Strain into ice-filled glasses and garnish with lime slices and cilantro.
