*A type of smoky Scandinavian liqueur. Batavia Arak/Arrack-based, flavored and sweetened with cane sugar. Not readily available in North America. However, some folks I know produce their own homemade version of Swedish Punch using a mixture of spices, tea, lemon, sugar, and rum, to which wine is added after a few months of maceration.
