Norwegian Wood

A delightful cocktail created by Jeffrey Morgenthaler of Clyde Commons in Portland. He was challenged by a liquor rep to make something with aquavit, a far under-represented spirit, and this is what he came up with. It has a nice bright crispness along with a well layered complexity. Perhaps not one for the novice, but when you're ready for a little adventure, I'd definately pull this one out. You can read about this drink in Jeffrey's own words on his blog.
