Nalewka/Nastoika. Maybe considered as Slavic liqueur.

Nalewka is a traditional Polish category of alcoholic beverage. A similar drink existsin east Slavic countries known as Nastoika. East Slavic alcoholic drink Nalivka is a false friend of Polish Nalewka.
The drink is usually 40 to 45% strong and is made by maceration of various ingredients in alcohol, usually vodka or neutral spirits. Among the ingredients often used are fruits, herbs, spice, sugar or molasses. The name nalewka is currently being registered for national appellation within the European Union. Unlike ordinary liqueurs, nalewkas are usually aged. Taste-wise, it is similar to apple and fruit-flavored brandies such as calvados or eau-de-vie (or Canadian maple syrup-infused whiskey), but is much sweeter, almost liqueur-like.
Large well-stocked Russian bars feature hundreds of nastoikas, made by infusing various herbs (e.g., tarragon), vegetables (e.g., pepper, horseradish), fruits (e.g., lemon) and berries (e.g., cranberry) into vodka. For example, Stolichnaya exports 15 various nastoikas.
Most nalewkas have their proper name derived either from their main ingredient or from the name of their traditional place of production. Common ingredients of nalewkas are fruits, herbs, spices, coffee, honey, sugar, and molasses. Some examples of ingredients:

Anise (anyżówka)
Apricots (morelówka)
Blackcurrants (porzeczkówka)
Cherries (wiśniówka)
Common hawthorn (głogówka)
Cornus mas (dereniówka)
Ginger (imbirówka)
Green Persian walnuts (orzechówka)
Juniper (jałowcówka)1
Wormwood (piołunówka)
