  • The ginger and aquavit are nice together. Used grapefruit twist by necessity and liked it. Friend called it "perfumey." — ☆☆☆☆

I think this is an

I think this is an extraordinarily good cocktail.  Very well balanced, rich and complex.  The ginger and the hint of caraway from the Aquavit are a perfect fit.  I made mine with Aarbrog may have more (or less) caraway than the North Shore...??  Lovely drink in any case.
