Homemade Peppermint Extract

- 1/2 Cup fresh Peppermint leaves

1- 2 Cups decent Vodka (I used Absolut Vodka, 80 proof)

1 glass jar with tight lid

1. Pick your Peppermint leaves off and bruise by rolling them between your hands. Stop

and smell :)

2. Place Peppermint leaves in a glass jar, cover leaves completely with vodka or it will


3. Put the lid on, place a sticker with the day's date on it so you know when it will be ready.

4. Store the filled glass jar in a dark, cool and dry cupboard or pantry.

5. Shake, swirl and wait 30 days.

6. After 30 days remove and use in cakes, brownies, ect.
