   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   12      Tbsp          Dried Peppermint Leaves -- Crumbled
    1      Fifth         Vodka
    1 1/2  Cups          Sugar Syrup
    1      Tsp           glycerine
 
 Marinate the mint leaves in the vodka for eight days, shaking
 occasionally.  Strain the leaves using a metal strainer, and press all
 the floud out of the leves.  This step should not be omitted because
 thematerial contains considerable flavor. Many small particles of leaves
 will remain in your alcohol and mint solution at this point. If you feel
 it necessary, strain further through cheesecloth.  Add the sugar syrup
 and glycerine.
