Norwegian NegroniNorwegian Negroni

Adapted from a recipe by Adam Harness, Cafe Maude, Minneapolis, MN.

“A very light and herbal/citrus taste, perfect for a before dinner libation. Due to the fact that many Minnesotans are of Norwegian heritage, I thought this would be a good starter for someone who wants to experience a craft cocktail.” Adam Harness.

60 ml (2 oz) Linie aquavit

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Noilly Prat dry vermouth

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Aperol

2 dashes Bittercube orange bitters

1 lemon twist, as garnish

Stir over ice and strain over an ice chunk in a low-ball glass. Add the garnish.

gaz sez:  This is a delightful use of aquavit.  The drink is simple, dry, and very sophisticated.  One of my favorites this year.
