Complement

The cocktail world is finally starting to take notice of aquavit – a Scandinavian liqueur flavored with caraway and dill – and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it! Aquavit makes for incredible savory cocktails, and can even stand up to a touch of sweetness.

We stumbled across the Complement in the Washington’s Posts Spirits column, attributed to bartender Hardeep Rehal at Copenhagen’s Bar Rouge. It’s one of our favorite ways to show off the complexity of aquavit; the result is the cocktail equivalent of a fresh piece of rye bread straight from the bakery, re-imagined as an ice-cold Martini-style cocktail.

The dill garnish isn’t strictly required, but the drink definitely benefits from the fresh scent. If you don’t have dill, a twist of lemon peel is almost as good.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
