To make mint extract:
1. Use about a cup of mint leaves(removed from the stems)and crush them with your fingers to release some of the oils. 2. Place the mint leaves into your glass jar or bottle. Using a chopstick or other poking device, lightly crush/bruise the leaves some more.
3. Add the vodka, filling up to the neck of the jar or bottle Seal tightly and store bottle in a cool, dark and dry place. Every few days, tilt your jar or bottle upside down to gently mix the liquid inside.
