National Créme de Menthe Day was yesterday, and that got us thinking. We’ve all heard of putting this minty liquer in coffee – but why should we limit ourselves? So we found 10 other delightful uses for this delicious spirit:

  1. Créme de Menthe Brownies  – via AverieCooks.comcremedementhebars-17
    Basically, a giant Andes candy – but better, because it’s in brownie form!

2. Tequila Mockingbird – via AbsolutDrinks.com

Because who says tequila has to be limited to margaritas?

3. Créme de Menthe Parfaits – via FoodNetwork.com

Definitely pretty enough to serve at a dinner party!

4. The Drunken Elf – via DrinksMixer.com

It’s not Christmas yet – but after a long Saturday afternoon at a crowded holiday mall, you’ll be glad you saved this recipe.

5. Dirty Girl Scout Cookies – via Liquor.com
Perfect for Halloween – but they’re for grown-up trick-or-treaters only!

6. Continental Cocktail – via SheKnows.com
 Believe it or not, these cocktails don’t have to be green – use clear créme de menthe if you don’t care for the color.

7. Créme de Menthe Cheesecake – via BettyCrocker.com
What better complement to cool créme de menthe than creamy cheesecake?

8. Shamrock Cocktail – via Liquor.com
