To make a simple syrup, combine sugar, salt and 1 cup water in a small pot. Bring to a boil. Stir, and reduce heat to medium high. Stir occasionally until sugar is dissolved, approximately 5 minutes.
Add the mint leaves. Let the simple syrup cool.
Pass the lemon juice and lime juice through a strainer into a pitcher. Add the remainder of the water and ½ cup + 2 Tbsp of the simple syrup.
