This is very sweet and minty. Great in mixed drinks.

This worked well and made a great addition to my stockpile! Great use too for all the mint that is growing like mad outside in this heat! I did not use the glycerin- did not notice any difference really. The color is right on! Pretty green! Thanks alia!
