Aquavit is such a refreshing flavor on its own, but it’s really something else entirely when combined with lime juice, a bit of bubbly and some sweetener. The Swedish 60 has such a crisp, lovely flavor – something like a whiff of a great deli sandwich on rye bread.
This lovely treat, from author Maggie Savarino from The Seasonal Cocktail Companion, is just as good with kümmel as it is with the recipe’s original aquavit.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled champagne flute or coupe glass. Garnish with a twist of lime.
