While a mason jar is appropriate for both shaking and serving, a cocktail shaker does the trick, too.


Dissolve sugar in water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; reduced heat to low and simmer 3 minutes. Transfer syrup to a bowl; let cool completely.

Fill each of six jars with 1 cup ice, 13 cup prepared syrup, 2 Tbsp. rum, and 2 Tbsp. Triple Sec; squeeze juice of 1 lemon into each jar (slice and reserve squeezed lemon halves). Cover jars with tight-fitting lids and shake vigorously to mix.

Top each drink with club soda and garnish with lemon slices.
