Drink Recipes Featuring Traditional Aquavit:

Caraway gives aquavit a savory bent that tends to be assertive. But, even so, the results of a nicely balanced aquavit cocktail make it worth the effort, best is always a simple cocktail like: Danish Mule, Sunrise Over the Fjord, Boilermaker.

Aquavit cocktails deserve food: Hors d’oeuvres, Pu pu platter, smorgasbord or other fish or meat dishes, even Sushi!
