Default Mojito Skeeter Pee?

I'm looking to make myself a batch of lime-mojito Pee. I've made a good Lime Pee before, and I'm curious what you guys think would be the best way to add mint flavor. I was thinking a handful of fresh crushed mint leaves in secondary... what do you guys think?

What a cool idea

As for the addition, I'd say it depends on your batch. When you make a mojito, you're mechanically busting up the leaves.. when making mojito pee (jeeterpee?) you're going to let them sit in a solvent (the alcohol).

In my expert opinion (I googled for two mojito recipes!) I'd say go with a dozen mint leaves per gallon, muddle, and toss in secondary. It sounds like a lowball figure but remember how long your pee will sit in secondary versus how long your mojito will sit at the bar (if you're anything like me, heh.)

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. A month or 3 with a couple handfuls of mint leaves, sitting on that alcohol the whole time should leach out alot of that minty goodness. :-)

From someone who is preparing to make his first batch of Skeeter Pee, I think it would be better to add crushed mint when served. I think it would give the Pee a fresher, brighter flavor and smell than if the mint was added and aged - did someone just post something about mint-flavored Listerine while I was typing this

Or you could just add some mint extract...

Huesmann has a point in that you can add it to taste before bottling.

To which I'd say, but think of all the skeeterpee he's gonna have to drink before he gets the mint leaves right

Yeah, but when he discovers how much mint leaf he needed is he still gonna be sober enough to remember it?

Sorry to bump this old thread but were you happy with the outcome of your recipe? I've been quite pleased with my lemon and lemon/raspberry skeeter pee that I'm tempted to try a lime one... and since I've got plenty of fresh mint leaves available, a mojito pee sounds like the way to go!
