Creme de menthe too herb-y, any ideas?

WakeyWakey | Apr 13, 2014 07:07 PM

I tried to make some creme de menthe using vodka, fresh mint leaves and simple syrup. Unfortunately, we had company staying at the time and I forgot about it so instead of steeping for one day, it went three! As a result, it has this really strong herbal taste that overpowers the mint. I don't know how else to explain it, but it's not good.

I've kept it, thinking maybe one day I'd figure out how to correct it, but that hasn't happened yet. I'd really appreciate any suggestions...I'll try just about anything as it can't get any worse! Thanks!
