"In Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, Stewie mentions that enjoys "an occasional creme de menthe" when conferring with Brian about drinking. "

Much as I enjoy Family Guy, is this anecdote encyclopedic at all? --Benfergy 20:51, 7 October 2005 (UTC)

I think it comes under the concept of "such and such" in popular culture. `Zozart .chat 02:31, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
Seems to me to be more appropriate for a trivia section in an article on Stewie Griffin than crème de menthe. DavidGC 07:16, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

"Kurt Vonnegut's novel, Cat's Cradle makes mention of a drink called End of the World Delight. A bartender says he made it for a homeless man on the day the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima." There is no mention of Creme de menthe in this point. I'm removing it, but if someone knows how anything in the point relates to creme de menthe, please replace the pop culture reference and explain it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:15, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Sandra Lee[edit]

Why is Sandra Lee's recipe for cheap homemade (by a semi-ho) liqueur referenced here?. It was supposedly "made popular" but there is no evidence of its supposed "popularity" presented. This part does not belong; it's just a plug for semi-ho Lee who will apparenly drink anything containing alcohol, no matter how crappy. Unless someone provides a compelling reason to include this promotional material for crappy semi-ho-made booze, I will delete it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:28, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

It's also wrong ... the formula references peppermint, but this article says it's Creme de Menthe is actually Mentha requienii – Corsican mint. Peppermint is Mentha × piperita, or on the peppermint page, listed as a cross between (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (Mentha spicata).

So the recipie could be listed, but should either be referenced that it is incorrect or a correction made to the mint page and this page (which is I believe unlikely).

I can taste a distinct difference; maybe some people can't?

Where does the "creme" come from? The liqueur is nothing like Cream, where creme is redirected to. Literally this should mean "cream of mint" or "cream from mint", but that just does not fit. (talk) 17:21, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

I found something from the Crème liqueur article. Crème in this case refers to the consistency. Strange it is not linked in the article. (talk) 05:25, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

It means 'the best' (ie the highest quality of liqueur) like 'creme de la creme' and so the "french for mint cream" in this article is wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:50, 30 April 2015 (UTC)


I would love to know more about the history of the drink- I am assuming like most liqueurs it is Italian in origin. Most other articles talk about how/why they were developed. I'm interested in knowing, if anyone has the knowledge.Coemgenv (talk) 03:43, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
