2 Cups simple syrup (make syrup with 1 part water and one part sugar)
2 Cups lemon juice, freshly squeezed (about 12-14 small lemons) or a frozen lemonade mix in a pinch
1 1/2 Cups gin
15 fresh mint leaves

Directions

Add sugar and water to a pot over medium heat.  Stir until sugar is dissolved.  Cool completely.
