What is Creme De Menthe? Creme De Menthe is a sweet peppermint or spearmint flavored liqueur. It is available in white or green colors. You can use either one in recipes, as they taste very similar, unless the recipe calls for the green color of course. It can be used in cocktails, but also is used in making food recipes, such as mint chocolate.
