Anyone got an easy recipe for this?
I figure it is just like making toffee using a strong horehound infusion rather than water?

Yip. The only thing that enabled my mum to get horehound down me as a kid was insane levels of sugar.
Now I like tonic, radicchio and grapefruit so maybe there's other ways...

Maybe start with a horehound syrup.

I remember the soft drink from my childhood. Is there a reason you want it MA?

I've made it a few times...boil some water, simmer your horehound-Marrubium vulgare, add some sugar and some aniseed or fennel and cardamon, simmer for about 10 minutes.
You can have it as a syrup-tastes just like Benadryl!
If you strain and simmer for longer, you can turn it into a cough drop/toffee.
Beware, Horehound is very sedating, especially when used to make beer.

I'm a bit addicted to Italian digestive liqueurs (Averna),
I wonder if this might be one of the secret ingredients.
repels flies too

Bitter herbs are good for getting the liver going Traditionally taken by Europeans at the end of big meal.
recent research shows that bitter tastes my in fact help diseases like asthma.
bitter tasting plants generally have hight levels of photochemicals, esp alkaloids
