  1. Add water and red cabbage to a medium-size pot. Bring the water to a boil, then strain the cabbage in a sieve over a bowl to reserve the blue liquid.
  2. Pour the strained blue water into an ice tray. You will be left with 1 cup (235 ml) of blue water. Reserve the water and freeze the ice tray for 6 hours, or overnight.
  3. Add the reserved blue water to a pot with the sugar and bring to a boil until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside.
  4. Combine the lime juice with 1½ (355 ml) cups of water and stir to combine. Pour the lime mixture into an ice tray and freeze for 6 hours, up to overnight.
  5. Add the blue ice cubes to a blender and blend until finely crushed. Put the crushed blue ice in a glass.
  6. Wash the blender well.
  7. Add the lime ice cubes and 8 mint leaves. Blend until finely crushed. Put the crushed lime and mint ice on top of the blue ice.
  8. Slowly pour the white rum and blue simple syrup. Top with a sprig of mint.
  9. Enjoy!
