  1. Roll the limes back and forth on the counter to break the membranes inside the lime and make them easier to squeeze. Cut each in half and juice with a juicer or by hand. You should have about ½ cup of key lime juice.
  2. Add key lime juice, simple syrup, water and ice to a pitcher. Taste for sweetness and adjust accordingly. Serve cold with mint leaves in the pitcher or in glasses for garnish and a little extra flavor.
