A traditional Czech liqueur, Becherovka has notes of sweet spices, pungent herbs, and stomach-soothing bitters. It blossoms into a light and fizzy refresher when mixed with tonic water and a generous squeeze of lemon. (The drink's name is a mashup of the two ingredients, but also a word that translates to "cement" in Czech.)
