Homemade Cream De Menthe

130 mins (prep 10, cooking 120)
5 ingredients
16 servings
My mom gave me this recipe many years ago. I've used it nearly every year at Christmastime, making gifts for family and friends. I shop all year long for pretty bottles for gift-giving. When I started making it, we lived in North Carolina, where you can buy Everclear, Now, however, we live in Virginia and can get vodka. I use 100 proof and it doesn't seem to affect the outcome at all.Number of servings is a guess and so is the amount of time it takes, as there are many variables in these.Enjoy!
