Making this homemade mint extract is a lot like my sweet tea vodka.  I got the idea from the ladies at mylittlehomestead and you can definitely learn from them.

I don’t do a lot of projects with alcohol, its less than 1% of my total posts, but alcohol is amazingly useful when used appropriately.

Its pretty easy to make this homemade mint extract

  • Pluck the leaves from your mint.  You don’t want stems
  • Fill a mason jar with the leaves
  • Top off the jar with a neutral spirit.  I used vodka, but moonshine, ever-clear, or white rum would work.
  • Close the jar tightly and store in a cool place for a couple of months
  • Shake the jar every couple of weeks
  • Lastly, strain out the leaves

Store extract in a tightly closed container in a cool dark place.  You could use this in the homemade mouthwash I showed a while back.  Or you could use it with your homemade sweet tea vodka for some designer drink.  Of course, most people would just use this in cooking.

I don’t care how you use this Homemade Mint Extract, I just hope you find it useful.  I also hope you visit the guys over at my little homestead.  I really enjoy their videos.
