A 2QT pitcher
Fresh Mint Leaves (at least 50)
Simple Syrup (dissolve 1 cup sugar in 1/2 cup boiling water, and chill prior to mixing)
Limes and/or Lime Juice
Seltzer or Lime Seltzer
Put a handful of mint leaves (around 40sih) in the bottom of your pitcher and muddle. If you don't have a muddler, the end of a thick wooden spoon will work. If you muddle to much, you will have a lot of floaters in your glass. I provided a picture of before muddle, and after. You are basically just mashing them a bit to extract the mint from the leaves.
