    What a fantastic idea for a holiday gift! People love stuff like this:) Hahaha! It really does show so much love to gift something so elegant and home made. Can’t wait to try this one!

  • I’m decidedly not a fan of most things mint, but can’t wait to see what other concoctions you’ll be coming up with in this area.

    More tastes to try, Susan! I can easily picture this drizzled over some vanilla ice cream or over ice next spring when I get to sit on my deck again. I know just who to share this recipe with, too. Off to find you on Facebook!

  • Susan, I love this recipe but it will have to wait for Spring when my mint starts growing again – everything now has been hit by frost.
    Remember vodka and orange juice, such a favourite in the 60s? I have orange mint in the garden and I think I may try this in the Spring with both the regular and orange mint. Sounds like fun. Pinned and tweeted (I think I’m going to have to create a special Susan’s recipe board on Pinterest since I seem to pin all of your good recipes LOL)

  • I love that you use fresh mint in this recipe! I’ll try this one after I perfect the coffee liqueur. I had a question as I was reading through both recipes – I don’t have a clamp down jar but I have a large screw-lid jar. Would that work?

  • I truly love everything mint, so I’m sure I’d love this homemade Creme de Menthe, Susan. Brings back the memories of the “Grasshopper cocktails” I grew up on!

    What a pity my mother has passed on. It was her favourite liqueur.

  • I have mint growing in my back yard like a weed. We put mint in and on everything that you could possbily think of using it for. And there’s usually a bag of limes in my fridge for mojitoes. I’ll have to try this.

  • I’ve never had this before. I’m not a huge vodka fan anymore so I might have to pass on this.

  • I like that this recipe calls for fresh mint. Alas, I no longer have mint growing in my garden. I had quite a bit of it at the house I moved out a year ago.
