Aquavit Sour

Yield 2 servings


4 cl aquavit

4 cl lemon juice

2 cl simple syrup (see below for recipe)

1 cl egg white


Simple syrup

2 decilitre water

2 decilitre sugar

1 vanilla pod


  1. Add all the ingredients in a shaker except the icecubes.
  2. Shake it as hard as you can for a couple of minutes to create foam.
  3. Add the icecubes and shake a little while longer.
  4. Pour into cocktail glasses and serve straight away.


Use as big icecubes as possible to create a good amount of foam and to avoid icy bits in your drink.

Recipe inspired from "Pjolter"- a Norwegian cocktail revolution book.
