Remove seeds from cardomom pods. Add the anise seeds, and crush all the kernals with the back of a fork. Put them in a 1-quart container adding angelica root, cinnamon stick, clove, mace, and vodka. Shake mixture well and store in a cupboard for 1 week. Pour through cheesecloth lined strainer several times. Blend the liquid with the sugar syrup. Ready to serve. Yield: 1 quart.

*Most of these ingredients can be found at health food stores. This liqueur is similiar to Italian Strega and the spicy taste may not appeal to everyone.
