If you like mint during the holidays, or any time, you will love this smoothie! We added only half an ounce of crème de menthe due to the strong mint flavor that tends to overpower the fruit flavors. You could experiment with other types of alcohol along with the crème de menthe, such as amaretto, Irish cream, or crème de cacao. When using the sweet liqueurs, it would be best to use fruits with rich flavors such as oranges or bananas. We were going for a distinctive mint flavor with this smoothie recipe, which was achieved by using mild flavored fruits and vegetables (cucumber and pear).
