Wash mint, lime և lemon և mint in cold water, dry with paper towels. Cut citrus fruits into thin half-rings or quarters. The cut egg does not play a fundamental role here, it does not affect the taste of the drink. Put finely chopped fruit in a container, add sugar. Cane sugar is better because it will give caramel notes to the finished drink. You can use a sugar substitute.
Then add mint masters to the container, previously torn by hand or finely chopped with a knife. They can be crushed in a mortar to get a juice that can be poured over the rest of the ingredients.
Thoroughly mint the mint, lemon and lime with a fork or spoon. The main thing is to separate the juice from them, then the finished cocktail will be more fragrant and richer in taste.
Divide the prepared mixture into pre-washed և dried cups or tall glasses և pour on soda. You can use not only Sprite, but also ordinary baking soda.
Transfer half of the ice to a blender bowl and mix into large crumbs. You can mash the ice in another way: crush the pieces of ice in a towel հար mix it a little with a rolling pin. Add the obtained crushed ice (about 0.75 of the volume of the glass) to the drink և whole ice cubes.
By the way, in order to make the ice transparent, it is necessary to use cold boiled or non-carbonated purified water for its preparation.

Garnish the drink with lime pieces and mint leaves. It should be drunk immediately after cooking, until the ice has melted. Serve the drink with a cocktail straw.
