                                                                  Although the combination of spices and herbs used in aquavit is endless, some of the most recognized flavors include caraway, anise, fennel, and cardamom. This infused spirit from Scandinavia is best enjoyed straight from the freezer as a shot—accompanied by a toast. This recipe was featured as part of our Summer Solstice menu.

                                                                  Ingredients
                                                                  • Yes No 2 tsp caraway seed
                                                                  • Yes No 2 tsp fennel seed
                                                                  • Yes No 2 cardamom pods
                                                                  • Yes No 2 whole cloves, whole
                                                                  • Yes No 1 medium lemon
                                                                  • Yes No 1 medium orange
                                                                  • Yes No 1 vodka
                                                                  • Yes No 1 tsp sugar, granulated
                                                                  • Toast caraway, fennel, cardamom, and cloves in a small frying pan over medium heat, shaking occasionally until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
                                                                  • Using a vegetable peeler, remove a quarter of the peel from both the lemon and orange. Avoid removing the white pith; set the peels aside.
                                                                  • Remove about 2 tablespoons of the vodka from the bottle. Either drink it or discard it.
                                                                  • Place the toasted spices, lemon and orange peels, and sugar into the bottle. Cover tightly.
                                                                  • Let the vodka infuse at room temperature (choose a spot that is neither too warm nor too cold) for 2 weeks, turning and gently shaking the bottle once a day. After 2 weeks, taste the aquavit; let it stand longer as needed.
                                                                  • Strain the aquavit through a fine mesh strainer into a large liquid measuring cup; discard the solids. Transfer the aquavit to a clean bottle with a tightfitting lid and store in the freezer.
                                                                  Yields: 1(750-milliliter) bottle

                                                                    fry
