Nordic Summer Cocktail | Bjorn Bites & Booze | Wild West Viking

Nordic Summer

The Nordic Summer cocktail is exactly the drink you want to enjoy during Sankt Hans, a Danish Midsummer tradition, or really, at any point during the summer! This cocktail is an elegant trifecta with a combination of Aquavit, Aperol and fresh lime juice. This unexpectedly refreshing cocktail has notes of crispy fruit, and unique herbal flavors. This cocktail is enjoyed around the bonfire as we bake the "snobrød" or Twisty Bread, baked over hot coals. The bonfires are lit all over Denmark on Sank Hans evening, where hygge and songs are enjoyed with family and friends.
