Add the mint leaves, and remaining sugar, stir well then re-cover with the towel and set aside for 8-12 hours more at room temperature. Again strain the mixture through a fine seive. Pour into a 1 gal. container, add the raisins, cover the top with plastic wrap, secure with a rubber band, and place in cool NOT cold, spot for 4-5 days or until the raisins are floating and the sediment has sunk to the bottom.
