Raisins washed with hot water and dried. Figs finely. Oranzheatat cut onion in need. Cardamom is broken, the seeds are placed in a pestle with fenelat, anise, Matsis and cloves, and roughly crushed. Everything is placed in a large bottle with licorice. Saffron soaked in 2-3 tbsp water and poured with water to spices. Pour whiskey, close and shake thoroughly. Stayed four weeks in a warm, dark place (eg cupboard in the kitchen), shaking occasionally. After staying strained and strained spices squeeze hard. Run again through a filter. Stays still two months in a dark, cool place (eg cellar). Run through a filter in small bottles to not lose flavor when opening for serving. On this drink is attributed healing and vital action, but above all its flavor is bribery. * This is one of many variations of the drink. It is said that every English monarch had his own recipe, and homemade variations are certainly numerous.
