2. Won't that curdle?
I'm assuming there's dairy in creme de menthe. I hate mint so I never drink it.

I know lime juice and Bailey's curdles because of the dairy in Irish Creme.

4. You assume in error. No curdle.
'Scuse me for :rofl: but that was funny.
Nope, no dairy in creme de menthe.


Crme de menthe is a sweet, mint-flavored alcoholic beverage. Its flavor is primarily derived from Corsican mint. It is available commercially in a colorless (called "white") and a green version (which obtains its color from the mint leaves or from the addition of coloring, if extract and not the leaves are used to make the liqueur). Both varieties have similar flavors and are interchangeable in recipes, except where the color is important.

Crme de menthe is used as an ingredient in several cocktails, such as the Grasshopper and the Stinger, and is also served as an after-dinner drink and can be used in food recipes as a flavoring (see Mint chocolate).

The traditional formula involves steeping dried peppermint leaves in grain alcohol for several weeks (creating a naturally green color), followed by filtration and the addition of sugar.<1>

5. Laugh it up!
You have no idea how difficult it is to find not-mint toothpaste. There is a glut of orange-mint, cinnamint and bubblemint product. It's like the idea that some people want toothpaste that is not minty is foreign to them. :cry:

So I'm assuming there is no creme in creme de cacao either.

6. No need to assume.
That almost always gets you in trouble.
You can do the research as well as I can.
Wiki is your friend.

Yeah, I'm still laughing.
