Making your own homemade extracts is quick and easy with these simple and easy instructions! Each homemade gift costs just a few dollars to make and a few minutes of your time! Your friends and neighbors will rave about this delicious peppermint extract!
Why am I sharing this gift idea now? Because our peppermint extract has been stewing since early October. You are going to want to start making this gift now in order to have it ready in time for Christmas. It’s not a time consuming gift to make–we’re talking minutes. But it does take a good month of sitting in order to finish.
You’ll need several things in order to start:
A bottle of vodka or white rum
Peppermint or spearmint leaves (or a combination of both)
1-2oz Glass Bottles–we found ours at AromaTools
Once the extract is finished, you can give a bottle of extract and a bag of Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips as a gift to a neighbor, friend or family member. They make the perfect gifts!
