    How much does the recipe call for? Is this for a dessert?

    Would subbing a mint extract or another mint flavored liquor for the de menthe work?

    If you can't find it in the supermarket, you should be able to find it in a liquor store.

    Here you can only buy it at the liquor store. There are two types, bright green and clear/white.

    Start with 1/4 t mint extract and increase to taste, I'd think no more than 1/2 teaspoon. The stuff is pretty strong.

    I agree with Longhorn Mama, but to keep the liquids on track, I'd make some creme de menthe to use in the recipe.
    Creme de Menthe is nothing but a SIMPLE syrup, spiked with vodka or everclear and flavored with mint extract. Green food coloring is optional. Easy to make, it lasts on the shelf forever!
    Good luck! icon_lol.gif

    I have never had any liquor go bad.

    Wine is another matter of course.

    It should be good whenever you come back to it even if it is a long long time from now.
