Bismarck Fizz - Christmas cocktail from Duck and Cover

Bismarck Fizz

I’ll have my sugar cane in a drink…

This is without comparison the best way we have ever enjoyed an Aalborg Christmas aquavit. The sharp, distinct and complex caraway spice is surprisingly seducing in this citric wrapping combined with a tasteful measure of peppermint and almond flavored liqueur.

Bismarck Fizz - Christmas cocktail from Duck and Cover4 cl Christmas Akvavit
1 cl Orgeat
2 cl Lemon juice
1 cl Amaretto
1 bar spoon Mentepastille (Créme de menthe)
1 dash of egg white

All ingredients except the soda are dry shaken to emulsify the egg white and subsequently shaken with ice before being fine strained into a high ball glass and topped with soda. When settled it’s garnished with a Bismarck sugar cane and a holly leaf.

The minty Bismarck sugar cane brings you across the palate and opens up the caraway flavor bringing the aquavit cocktail experience to a whole new level. This is a very convincing example of how 2+2 equals 5 when the ingredients of the equation have the right complementary qualities. Find it at Duck and Cover.

The Bismarck Fizz is featured in our Christmas Cocktail Calendar along with other tasty goodies.

It is best enjoyed after singing the following Danish aquavit song “pure like a virgin”:

I believe that true mastery eventually leads to original creation given the right conditions. I love creative cocktails that push the limits of flavor pairing. But I can't deny I have a personal preference for whisky and love everything that is clear and stirred.
