Jägermeister? That one has lots of _kryddörter_ (herbs and spices), at least... ;-) Seriously, though, there actually is a drink that might be called both _stark_ and _kryddstark_. (There are probably more, but only one I've tasted so far.) In Hungary, they make a kind of brandy whose main ingredient seems to be some sort of pepper (capsicum). It's quite good, but... wow... *interesting*, to say the least.
