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.
Shake with ice and pour into a tall glass or tiki mug. Top with crushed or pebble ice and go absolutely bonkers with garnish.
