Tschunk (Club Mate Cocktail)

Tschunk is a cocktail made with Club Mate, a popular German caffeinated carbonated drink with mate-extract. Made popular in the hacker scene, Tschunk is prepared in the same way as Cuba Libre, but with Club Mate instead of cola. Crush limes and brown sugar in a tall glass, then fill with rum and Club Mate.
