In a large stock pot or container add the mint and use the handle of a wooden spoon to smash or muddle it to release the oils.
Add limeade, Everclear, rum and simple syrup.
Add the juice of 3 limes and the lime halves to the container.
Cover and store in the refrigerator for 3 days.
After 3 days, remove moonshine and strain out the limes and mint pieces.

Place lids on jars and allow to sit in a cool, dry place for 1 month before enjoying.
Please enjoy responsibly.
