Peppermint Schnapps

Serves: 3
Total Calories: 560


1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 pint vodka
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a small saucepan, combine corn syrup and sugar bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolved. Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm, about 20 minutes. Stir in vodka and extracts. Color if desired (see below). Pour into sterilized bottles leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Tightly cap and store in a cool, dark place.

To make Almond Liqueur, substitute 5 teaspoons almond extract for the peppermint extract.

Packaging Suggestions: Pour the liqueur into an attractive clear bottle or a decanter. Decorate the lid with metallic cord, ribbon, bows, bells or a bright tree ornament. For a more festive touch, Peppermint Schnapps can be colored with green food color. Almond Liqueur can be colored with yellow food color with a speck of red to create an amber color. The entire bottle can be slipped into a decorative gift bag or wrapped in a sheet of cellophane brought to the top of the bottle, crushed together, and tied with ribbon. Trim with a candy cane!
