Smash the mint leaves using a wooden spoon to bruise and bring out the flavor. Divide mint into 4-8 oz. cups. Cut limes in half. Squeeze and place 2 halves into each glass on top of mint leaves. Add ice to fill the entire glass. Top off each glass with 7-Up. To garnish, you can place more mint or a thin lime slice.
