Viking Cocktail

What better combination of Nordic ingredients than aquavit and Swedish punsch for a drink called a Viking? I love how this lime sour is bursting with herbal flavors, both Scandinavian and equatorial. This may be my new favorite sour cocktail.

Swedish punsch is a rum based liqueur with clove, cardamon and lemon slices. There's black tea in there and sugar syrup too. It is sweet and doesn't require sweetening to balance the other ingredients.
  • 1 1/2oz. Swedish punsch
  • 1 oz. aquavit
  • 1 oz. lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
