Remove the zest of 4 of the limes using a vegetable peeler and put this, along with the sugar, mint and 1 cup of the water, into a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Once it's started boiling, turn the heat down and let the liquid simmer in the pan for about 5 minutes. Take off the heat, let cool, and then strain into a pitcher.

Squeeze the limes to make about 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons juice and then add, along with the rest of the water, to the jug of syrup. Add ice cubes and few sprigs of mint.
