This New Zealand-native liqueur gets its name from the Titoki berry, which along with kawakawa and manuka leaves give it a sweet and herbal flavor. Long employed by the Maori for medicinal properties, manuka leaves have been brewed as a tea for centuries (Captain Cook was said to drink it to prevent scurry). Ti-Toki is sold in hand-made ceramic bottles that are shaped like a "Tekoteko," a totem-like figure commonly planted atop Maori meeting rooms to ward off evil spirits. (Its ability to ward off hangovers is, alas, inconclusive.) [$68 for 500ml; ti-toki.com]
