How to make it

  • Put leaves in a large jar and cover with vodka.
  • Let steep for 48 hours. (2 full days)
  • Strain the mint leaves out of the vodka and discard the leaves.
  • Boil the sugar and the water until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Cool completely and add to mint infused vodka.
  • Let this stand until the liquid is completely clear.
  • If you wish for a deep green color, add as many drops as necessary to color the liqueur. You can bottle this in any glass bottle of your choice. (Commercially sold creme de menthe syrups are usually clear liquids without color.)
  • **Add 1/4 ounce of creme de menthe to your favorite hot chocolate with a topping of whipped cream and some shaved dark chocolate.

    I have never made a liqueur before, but I have some Corsican mint, the original mint variety used in making Creme de menthe, and I am excited to try it. What is a good vodka to use for making liqueurs? Do you have any suggestions? Thanks and I look forward to trying this recipe.
