Jade Immortal Liqueur releives tension & brightens the spirit! In Ancient China, Taoist monks gathered rare fruit, berries and roots to prepare an herbal liqueur that supported their philosophy of contemplation and contentment. Mellow and full bodied, this unique drink gained renown for its ability to calm the mind as an aid to meditation. It proved such a great nerve relaxer that many people outside the monastery began to use it to relieve anxiety and promote sound sleep. Many are familiar with liqueurs, but believe them to be very complex and even mysterious compounds that are very difficult to prepare. This is, of course, due to the fact that the formulas are of foreign origin and many of them have been kept secret for some time.
Liqueurs, cordials, and bitters are all herbal tinctures. They can be made either by fermenting or extracting. Simple extraction of herbs in grain alcohol is one of the best ways to make a tonic for quick tonification of vital energy. In the Orient, a strong rice wine is used to make tinctures. This type of high proof alcohol is unavailable in the United States. In Europe and the Americas, vodka is the preferred base for making an herbal extraction. Vodka of at least 80 proof is a clear, clean grain alcohol that is neutral to the energy of the herbs and it does not hide the aroma or taste of the herbal tincture.
