1 1⁄2 oz Aquavit, Linie
1 oz Cardamaro
1 ds Islay Scotch, Laphroaig (spritz, as garnish)

Stir, strain, rock, spritz.


Adrienne, fed up with coming up with drink names, has decided to simply name each drink after the person she's made it for, and told me that this drink is called the Rafa. I don't think that's a suitable name for a drink, especially one this delicious.

  • Not really fair to rate this as I didn't have Aquavit. I used 50% Pernod 50% gin instead. Also didn't add spritz. My version wasn't bad though. — ★★★★
