Doctor Krogstad

Somewhere in the Arctic Circle, in the ballroom atop the Doctor’s private lab, a group of 50 colleagues and friends in lobster bibs have gathered for a scientific demonstration and a small dinner dance.

Swedish Punsch and traditional aquavit have an affinity for each other. As is true of Scandavian flavors in general, these beverages combine to form a taste experience unlike any other: savory, slightly bitter from the caraway, slightly woodsy, tannic and sweet from the punsch.

This sour is modeled on the rum-based Doctor Cocktail recipe published by the gentleman of the same name in Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails. I’ve used Krogstad aquavit, but it could easily be a Doctor Linie or a Doctor Aalborg.

Doctor Krogstad
  • 2 oz Krogstad aquavit
  • 1 oz Swedish Punsch
  • 1 oz lime juice
Stir in an iced shaker and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
