Spanish term or phrase: botánico
Steps explaining how to prepare a drink of vodka:

4. Añade lentamente el refresco o combinado que prefieras, si es que buscas preparar un combinado. Si optas por una copa “on the rocks”, simplemente omite este paso.

5. Por último, escoge el ****botánico**** que más te apetezca de esta caja y acompáñalo de un cítrico (tiras de naranja, lima…) para lograr un efecto fresco y frutal.

6. Remueve suavemente y ¡listo! Ya puedes disfrutar de tu vodka preparado.

I'm afraid there's no more context, the word appears on a list of instructions, which I imagine will be included inside the package, explaining how to prepare the drink.

Spanish from Spain to UK English.

I would appreciate your suggestions.

Thank you very much.

I translated this term about a year ago I think, so the research is done :-)

I'd already been hearing some buzz about souped-up gin and tonics. Word is that they're all the rage in Spain, and that there are many specialized bars in Barcelona dedicated to variations on this one classic drink. Recipe riffs at these Spanish bars include the addition of aromatic ingredients such as lemon zest, start anise, nutmeg, and cinnamon - all ***botanicals*** frequently used to flavor the myriad brands of gin available on the international market.
