Schnapps, in German, means alcohol. Peppermint Schnapps was invented by Francois Nicolas Appert, a Paris candy maker who invented it in about 1810 to put on ice cream. Napolean's wife, Austrian Marie Louise Duchess of Parma, took the recipe back to Austria where it not only became very popular used on ice cream, but as a drink. Francois Appert also invented the art of canning food.
