“Peppermint Schnapps, the mouthwash you can swallow”

Peppermint mouthwash might taste great in the mouth, but you’re not supposed to drink it. Peppermint schnapps has been compared to mouthwash since at least 1999.

“Peppermint Schnapps, the mouthwash you can swallow” is a jocular saying that has been cited on Twitter since April 28, 2011. “No mouthwash? Drink Peppermint Schnapps” has been printed on several images.

Mine is peppermint schnapps (sp?). That mouthwash (straight) and dominion’s pizza together are a lethal (or impressionist artist dream) nightmare for the maid.

>I’ll take schnapps!

Eek!  Bad memories!  I still remember trying peppermint schnapps once at a restaurant my dad and I visited.

I might as well have requested a glass of mouthwash, straight up! Bleeeeech!

LOL!  I remember the first (and last) time I tried peppermint schnapps. I thought to myself that I might just as well drink a glass of Scope. Yuck…

You know what gin tastes like?  You know what peppermint schnapps tastes like?  Mix the two.  That’s what my rx mouthwash tastes like.  UGH

Why do people use mouthwash in the morning when peppermint schnapps exists?

Impressed that using peppermint schnapps as mouthwash actually helped the toothache quite a bit.
