Fjord

Slartibartfast, that god-like character in Douglas Adam's 's increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker Guide To The Galaxy trilogy, says he likes designing continents like Sweden and Norway with fjord because they have a pleasingly "baroque feel." This drink has that feel with Ă–sterlenkryddors akvavit or aquavit. 

The home kit is complete and giving drinks a fun herbal kick that's beyond the realm of juniper botanicals found in gins. Cumin, coriander, and fennel are savory flavors that actually pair well with the sweetness of juice drinks and brandy. 
  • 2 oz. brandy
  • 1 oz. aquavit (Ă–sterlenkryddors used)
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 2 tsp. grenadine
 Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
