  • Great martini alternative (Bull Run Regnig Dag Aquavit). We used a small amount of slapped mint in lieu of thyme, which also worked. Love the fresh herbal notes. Agree with dunking lemon peel & leaving in glass. — ★★★★
  • Garnished with some dried rosemary in lieu of fresh thyme. Considering adding a dash of gin as well for next time. — ★★★★
  • Just sprayed lemon juice in the glass. — ★★★★
  • Herbal and refreshing. Used Linie aquavit. Really enjoyed this one. — ★★★★
  • Very classy. Use the best/most interesting Aquavit on the shelf. I used Løiten Linie and was very happy. — ★★★★
  • I concur with all the comments above, never would've expected the St Germain to marry so well with the aquavit; the best aquavit cocktail I've come across so far. — ★★★★
  • Though not low-proof, this had a lightness to it. Would probably be better with a more interesting aquavit than I used. — ★★★
  • "Herbaceous without being medicinal" is exactly right. (Finally something with the aquavit that I'll happily make again!) — ★★★★
  • Very elegant. Herbaceous without being medicinal. Definitely adding to our roster. — ★★★★★

I like the thyme visually but I think the cocktail is even better with the lemon oils on the edge of the glass and the lemon twist dunked in.  Great taste. Aquavit rising to a position of prominence in my own personal cocktail cosmos. (it must be that it tastes so much like Swedish limpa.)
