An akvavit cocktail – with chocolate inside. Delicious!
An American cocktail with a Nordic theme – this is the North Sea Oil by Leo Robitschek.
This is a recipe from the beautiful Nomad Bar in New York City.
What’s extra interesting in this cocktail is the combination of aquavit and pineapple juice. You’re tempted to think these two components would not work together, but they do, and in a really good way.
In the middle of this week of Cocktail Detour original recipes we wanted to pay homage to our home country Sweden, and make an aquavit based cocktail. Here is the Petrichor!
In this joint post with Elin over at TRAVEL * FOOD * COOL we are celebrating some of the things Sweden and Canada have a common love for. Elin is making home made gravlax and we are making a cocktail with whisky and aquavit.
It’s inevitable. If you mix two Swedish spirits like punsch and aquavit, of course the cocktail you end up with must be called a Viking.
All the fun of a tivoli, but with an adult twist, is somehow captured in this cocktail, not so surprisingly called the Tivoli. It is an adult allegory of all the fun kids have at a tivoli. The drink is based around American bourbon, but also contains Swedish aquavit and some Italian vermouth and Campari.
This tiki drink is from Smuggler’s Cove in San Francisco. We love how they incorporate aquavit in a tiki cocktail, and the truth is it pairs surprisingly well with the pineapple juice.
