Danish Borscht

Borscht is a mild tasting beet soup common in Eastern and Northern Europe. It is the perfect ingredient to add savoriness as well as sweet notes to a cocktail made with aquavit. It also creates a beautiful red color.

This blender drink (and I do recommend using a blender for the right texture) is a lot like having a cold soup with alcohol at the same time. The effect of the sour cream gives it additional texture that is so enjoyable, you forget that it is a cocktail you are drinking.
  • 1-2 oz. aquavit
  • 4 oz. cold beet borscht
  • dash Tabasco sauce
  • dash lemon juice
  • sour cream
Combine aquavit, borscht, lemon and hot sauce with cracked ice in a blender. Blend until thick, not watery, and pour into a chilled Old Fashioned glass. Add a dollop of sour cream on top as a garnish.
