Infused Alcohol - Recipe needed

A friend was recently married and had her favourite drink (mojito) as the signature drink at her wedding. For Christmas I was thinking of trying to make a lime and mint infused rum (sort of a mojito-cello) that could be mixed with bubbly water to make mojitos.

Would this work? Any tried and true recipes? Do I have enough time? I've found limoncello recipes and wondered if I could just adjust to use lime and mint instead of lemon... but wasn't sure about quantities.

I don't want to "waste" an expensive bottle of booze. So I also wonder if just making a minted simple syrup would be the better route? Make a gift basket with all the mojito makings and some snacks. Ideas?
