Green Crème de Menthe is a green, mint flavored crème liqueur. Crème liqueurs (not to be confused with cream liqueurs, made with a spirit base, cream, and flavorings) are so named due to their very high level of sugar, which provide a texture like cream. There is also a clear version of crème de menthe called white crème de menthe.

There are many crème liqueur flavors, but all of them are syrupy in texture and low in alcohol, around 30 proof.
