The Golden Drink of the Angels
Angelica is used in a variety of herbal teas in different parts of the world. The Swiss have a traditional recipe for angelica liqueur, which they call Vespetro. Traditionally, it has been used as a warming and stimulating medicinal liqueur. Just a small sip of Vespetro is said to quickly relieve cramps, chills, digestive upsets, and flatulence. Even though it tastes delicious, this is a true medicinal tincture, not an after-dinner liqueur. The recommended dose of the "golden drink of the angels" is ten drops in water, taken three times daily thirty minutes before meals.

3. Allow the mixture 10 stand in a warm place for 8 days to steep. Shake it every lime you think about it. After 8 days of sleeping, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth bag, twisting well 10 extract every drop.
4. Dissolve the sugar in the water. Blend in the flavored spirits. Bottle and cork lightly.
