Vi & Tonic

Simplicity at its best

Aquavit & Tonic. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s about time: this is a really simple drink that can almost be considered an aquavit classic by now – in this variation with VI.ER‘s delicious small batch “Danmark” aquavit, a bottle where lemon peel and juniper are easy to locate with the traditional and dominating caraway taste.Vi & Tonic

3.5 cl VI.ER Danmark aquavit
10 cl Tonic (Fever Tree is a good choice!)

Build over ice in a highball and garnish with a red grapefruit wedge.

This is a fresh party starter. The tonic puts the caraway to the foreground but in a very pleasant and refreshing way. Aquavit works exceptionally well with tonic. Often a cucumber is used for garnish but this particular variation made by Carl Wrangel from the Barking Dog in collaboration with VI.ER Akvavit calls for grapefruit.
