Peppermint schnapps - based on fresh peppermint leaves - is fresh, mild and very delicate. Enjoy on its own. Or serve with lamb, fish, vegetables, soups, desserts, many types of cheese, and cheese cakes.
You can also use the schnapps in cookies, cakes, ice creams, desserts, salad dressings, jellies, barbecue sauces, herb butters - or any dish where you would normally use peppermint.
Try also to add a little peppermint schnapps to your hot chocolate.

turn your peppermint schnapps into a liqueur.
Use fresh peppermint leaves.
Pick them just before flowering and do it in the morning after the dew has disappeared.
That's when they have the highest content of essential oil.
If you buy fresh peppermint plants make sure they are really fresh - organic if possible - and free from spots and insect damage.
Handle the plant with care - fresh herbs bruise easily.
And use the leaves as soon as possible to get the most flavour and aroma into your schnapps.
