Peppermint extract is an infusion of fresh or dried peppermint leaves in alcohol. This infusion extracts peppermint oil from the leaves, which has a cooling, green-fresh aroma and flavor.

While peppermint extract is typically used in baking and candy-making, it can work as a mint substitute in an emergency.
