Norwegian Paralysis (Smuggler's Cove)

This is such a fun use of aquavit, the savory herb-infused spirit of the Scandinavian countries. The bottle pictured is Swedish Osterlenkryddors akvavit herb kit, but I refilled it with my own aquavit recipe. The rest is remarkably simple--you make a fruit punch. Aquavit is savory, with coriander, caraway seeds, fennel seeds and other herbs. (I added birch and angelica seeds in mine.) It goes great with citrus and pineapple.
  • 1 1/2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 12 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/4 demerara syrup
  • 1/2 oz. orgeat
  • 1 1/2 oz. aquavit (D.I.Y. used)
  • lemon wedge and umbrella garnish
Combine all ingredients except garnishes in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled highball glass full of fresh ice. Garnish with a tiny umbrella stuck into lemon wedge.
