    CaliforniaJan's Note:

    One of the highlights of our travels to Scandinavia was discovering aquavit, a tasty spirit with a hint of caraway or dill. I was happy to find this cocktail recipe to extend the ways we enjoy this Northern spirit!

      Oh my CaliforniaJan, but this is quite a tasty cocktail. It's rather strong so I don't recommend it to those who prefer lighter cocktails. But the cranberry juice adds a very nice touch against the Aquavit, and the lime juice provides a great citrus complement. It's one of those unique cocktails that could be refreshing in summertime or warming in wintertime...a year-round treasure! Made for ZWT #9 (Scandinavia).

      This was surprisingly tasty. I'm not usually an aquavit fan but my DH likes it so we keep a bottle in the freezer. The herbs and spices in the aquavit were complemented by the cranberry and lime without being hidden. I did reduce the liquor by 2 TBLS so I could continue to function, and after tasting added a splash of 100% cranberry juice to go with the muddled berries which bumped it from 4 to 5 stars. Now when DH is quaffing straight aquavit I'll have an option to enjoy with him. Made for ZWT 9 Scandinavia by one of Mike and the Appliance Killers.

      Delicious! I had some all natural cranberry juice, so I just used a splash of that since fresh cranberries are hard to come by in August! Made a second one (hic) with a bit of absolut vodka too. Made for ZWT 9
