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.

0.5 oz Long Table Texada Vodka
