      Title: Creme De Menthe
      Yield: 1 Quart
      1 c  Packed, rinsed and dried
           .. peppermint or spearmint
           .. leaves
      3 c  Vodka
      2 c  Sugar
      1 c  Water
      1 ts Glycerine; optional
           Green food coloring;
           .. optional
  In a quart-sized glass bottle or jar, steep the
  mint leaves in the vodka for about 10 days in a
  cool, dark place, shaking the bottle every day.
  Gently pour the jar's contents through a regular
  strainer or sieve, pressing hard on the leaves to
  release all their flavor. Follow this by 2
  strainings through slightly dampened cheesecloth.
  For true clarity and professional looking results,
  pour the strained mixture through a large clean
  coffee filter placed inside a funnel or clean
  coffee cone; loosely cover with plastic wrap since
  the process may take several hours.
  In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water.
  Bring to a boil over moderately high heat. Simmer,
  uncovered, 5 minutes. Let cool to room
  temperature. Add the glycerine and green food
  coloring, if desired.
  Funnel the strained brandy into a glass bottle,
  then funnel in the sugar syrup. Cover tightly;
  shake to blend. Let mature at room temperature, or
  slightly cooler, for at least two weeks.
