If you like a more sweet drink, then you can use more sugar. We pour the tincture into a saucepan of suitable size, put it on the fire and bring it to a boil. As soon as the liquid starts to boil, we remove the pan from the fire and leave it to cool. Then add a half liter of vodka. It is very important that it is of good quality, otherwise all your efforts can end badly.
