The Northern Inspiration Cocktail Recipe

This cocktail was created by Vancouver Island’s craft bartender Ryan Malcolm.
The benedictine and lemon balances the aquavit and delivers a very smooth and balanced experience.

This is an excellent cocktail to introduce someone to the unique flavor of aquavit.

I decided to make a more citrus forward variation of the cocktail and did not add the chocolate bitters.


1.5 oz Long Table Långbord Akvavit (aquavit)
0.5 oz Long Table Texada Vodka
0.5 oz Benedictine
1 dash of Scrappy’s Chocolate bitters
Twist of lemon


Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
