Norwegian Paralysis | Cocktail Party

Norwegian Paralysis

Aquavit, a Norwegian caraway liqueur, is delicious in savory cocktails – but the Norwegian Paralysis proves that this versatile spirit is equally at home in sweet tropical-style cocktails.

“Norwegian Paralysis” might well describe the effect of the first sip on the drinker: frozen between thoughts of Whoa, this is weird! and Wow, this is good!

This is good! wins out, of course – each sip is a fruity gradient from sweet citrus and nutty orgeat to funky, complex caraway and herbs.

Instructions

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
