The dog that bit you
Aquavit seems to have a weird affinity with grapefruit. A bit like the agave spirit tequila (who doesn’t like a classic Paloma cocktail?).
The dog that bit you is inspired by the agave stronghold of Copenhagen– The Barking Dog and their tasty house cocktail Feels like Berlin, substituting aquavit for tequila:
30 ml Harald Jensen Akvavit (or Aalborg Taffel)
15 ml mezcal
1,5 ml campari
25 ml lime
20 ml sugar syrup
Shake with ice. Fine strain into a cocktail glass and top off with the aromatic oils from a grapefruit zest.
A powerful caraway forward Danish style aquavit mixed with a bit of mezcal and some bitter campari makes this drink taste like a funky toasted grapefruit.
Be careful – it throws a heavy punch!
