Becherovka is an herbal bitter appetizer, and a typical product made in the Czech Republic. It is flavored with anise seeds, cinnamon, and aproximately 32 other herbs. It is normally served cold, and is often used as an aid to digestion. We drank it in a warmed up Cognac glass. It can also be served with tonic water, in which case it is known as a beton (Czech for "concrete"). Its alcohol content is 38 percent (76 proof).
In general, a good warming up tool after visiting the Christmas markets in Prague
