Herbal Liqueur

Benedictine DOM is one of those 500-years-old, top secret recipes invented by French monks. Its sweet taste is said to be the result of 27 herbs and spices, and the DOM stands for Deo Optimo Maximo: "To God, most good, most great." The recipe was nearly lost in the French revolution of 1789, but has been in production again since the 19th century.
