All you need to make this minty schnapps at home is four ingredients, including inexpensive vodka, and an empty bottle to store it in. This is a recipe that was created for More Top Secret Recipes many years ago but didn't make it into the final version. Now it finally has a home.

1/3 cup granulated sugar
one 16-ounce bottle light corn syrup
2 cups 80-proof vodka
2 teaspoons peppermint extract

1. Combine the sugar and corn syrup in a 2-quart pan and place over medium heat. Heat until sugar dissolves, stirring regularly, about 5 minutes.

2. When the sugar has dissolved, remove the mixture from the heat, add the vodka, and cover tightly with a lid. Let it cool down before you take the lid off.

3. When the liquid has cooled down, add the peppermint extract and pour it all into a sealable bottle. 

Makes 4 cups.

This is the freshest tasting Schnapps you will ever taste and so simple to make. After it cools off keep it in the refridgerator and YUM!!!!! Ice cold schnapps whenever you want a shot of it! I use peppermint oil in place of the extract and it just takes a few drops. Great recipe!

As good as it gets to the real! Taste's exactly like the real. And gets you quite drunk like the real one too.
