Enemy Lines

Death & Co. cocktail recipes are famous for splitting bases and pairing unconventional ingredients, and Enemy Lines from Jillian Vose is no exception.

Aquavit and tequila are probably two of the oddest bedfellows we’ve seen constitute the spirit base of a cocktail, but they work so well together. The oaky, aged flavors of the tequila somehow highlight the sweetness of aquavit, while the dill and caraway notes blend seamlessly with the bitters (another split, between aromatic and Peychaud’s creole bitters).

Though the lemon peel is only squeezed over the drink and then discarded, it’s a critical element of the drink and ties the flavors together perfectly. Don’t skip it!



Stir all ingredients (except the lemon peel) with ice until chilled. Strain into a short glass over ice (preferably one large cube or sphere). Squeeze the lemon peel over the drink and discard.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
