Apropos for the season, this is a classic, but marginally known, cocktail from the turn into the twentieth century. One of a very few classic aquavit cocktail recipes, it’s spicy and complex yet refreshing.
It’s a keeper no matter where the sun is (or you are) at midnight!
The Midnight Sun
1½ oz Aquavit-Private Reserve
½ oz Grapefruit Juice
½ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
¼ oz Simple Syrup
¼ oz Real Grenadine
Shake all ingredients over ice, strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with orange slice.
