This exciting Peppermint liqueur has been made at the Cape Town (South Africa) in history ever before the 1800’s. Yes its  Very refreshing! It will interest you to know that  I am familiar with what this should taste like  because I have series of it a lot in the past and it is close, but not quite. I remember one great occasion when this was a hit at my African Dinner Party. I used the cheapest brandy that I could  find at that time and it really tasted great.

  • 1 1/4 cups water
