      Crème De Menthe As with other “crème de� liqueurs, this term comes from the French phrase “crème de la crème� meaning the “best of the best� and does not mean the liqueur contains any cream. “Menthe� is the French for mint. To make their Crème de Menthe liqueur, De Kuyper use the oil extracted from fresh mint leaves which is then distilled and infused into a fine spirit. Other ingredients according to De Kuyper’s own recipe are then added – such as sugar and colouring. Once the blend has been made, the mixture is then allowed to marry for several weeks to develop a fuller flavour. Generally the De Kuyper Crème de Menthe referred to on the in-the-spirit website is the Green style unless otherwise specified. Some liqueur producers make a clear version – often referred to as “white� but this is very difficult to find and is most likely to be found in the collection of an exclusive cocktail bar rather than in your local supermarket.

      This is a VERY good recipe however, as one reviewer noticed "no creme anywhere", so I added one recipe of sweetened condensed milk #14062 and only added 1 cup of sugar.

      Just a little note - if you buy Creme de Menthe in a bottle there is no cream nor does it have a creamy texture. I looks like a clear, green liquor :-) Creme de Cacao isn't creamy either!
