Krupnik is a type of honey-flavoured vodka or liqueur, based on a traditional 17th-century Lithuanian drink called krupnikas; you’ll sometimes see recipes for krupnik Litewski, or Lithuanian krupnik. Krupnik is also the name given to a Polish soup made with barley, so take care not to get confused! Traditionally, this drink is served hot, with a knob of butter added.
