Funny, the ratafia I had was dark brown and sort of thick, like a cordial.
A nasty-tasting cordial.

You might try looking for ratafias(sp) in late period sources.  The only 
possible extant sample that I know of came from the just out of period 
"Vasa" ship recovery.  Reportedly, by the person who sampled it, it was 
clear and seemed to be like arak or ouzo.  Don't know the proof but it was 
in a small sealed flask.
