I'm trying to make Diabolo Menthe, a french drink which is apparently made out of mint syrup and 7up/sprite. Has anyone ever made it and knows if that's correct (have looked on the web but not found much), and which shops in the UK would sell mint syrup? It has to be really really really freakishly green!

or creme de menthe.

You can also buy peppermint cordial in supermarkets as well as peppermint extract (which is kept near the other food flavourings).

The green colour would have to be added seperately - you should find that with the peppermint extract although i dont advise adding any kind of colouring to food or drinks.

I think if I found it and drank it straight I'd be like Bart and Milhouse after drinking the super-super-squishi. I might even join the boyscouts if they accepted a 26y-old femaleperson.

I really really want to use the mint syrup though, just using lemonade with random minty stuff isn't good enough wink
