Make the mint simple syrup: Add the mint to a 16-ounce glass jar.
In a small saucepan, combine the water and sugar and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.
Pour the hot sugar syrup over the mint leaves in the jar. Let cool to room temperature, then cover and transfer to the refrigerator to continue steeping for 1–2 hours, until cold. Strain the mint out before using. Leftover syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Make the cocktail: Fill a cocktail shaker with the ice, then pour in the NOLET’S® Silver Gin, lime juice, and ½ ounce mint syrup. Shake for about 20 seconds, until cold, then strain between 2 coupe glasses.
Garnish each cocktail with a mint sprig and a lime twist.
