This is from a collection of recipes from books I own, but which I haven't myself tried yet. However, you can have faith that at least the authors themselves have tried them, so they're not deadly or anything.
*mint: mint, peppermint or spearmint are interchangeable for this recipe.
Steep leaves in vodka for 10 days, shaking occasionally. Strain and filter. Squeeze out all the oils you can. Add syrup, mature 2 weeks. If it comes out too weak, just add more flavoring and repeat steeping/filtering/aging. Should oil globules appear on the surface, remove with a blotter or paper towel.
