Dice limes, put them together with the brown sugar into a high glass and crush both. Add crushed ice and pour the rum and the mate over it. Add a straw
Tschunk or chunk[ˈtʃʊnk] is the name of a German cocktail consisting of Club-Mate and white or brown rum. It is usually served with limes. The edge of the glass may be covered with salt. As Club-Mate contains plenty of caffeine and sugar, the alcohol expedites the effect of the caffeine, thus the drink has a bracing impact.
The vowel in tschunk is pronounced like [u] ("oo"); there is no connection to the English word chunk. The cocktail was originally served in the "Club Forschung" (German for research club) in Rosenthaler Straße, Berlin. The club was also known as "Club for-chunk"
Like Club-Mate, the chunk is a typical drink within European hacker culture and can often be found at scene typical events or locations like the Chaos Computer Club or c-base. It's also a typical party-drink at German universities, because of the huge amount of caffeine. As a result of the international audience, today it can be found in other countries such as the United States and Canada as well.
