Author Notes

One of the summer drinks we're making at our bar right now, tweaked for making at home. We make our own creme de cassis in house, but for purchasing I recommend looking for a nice brand like Mathilde or Briottet. —fiveandspice

  • 1 1/2 ounces aquavit, or vodka for a less spiced drink
  • 1 ounce creme de cassis
  • 3/4 ounce Riesling syrup (to make, just combine 3 parts off-dry Riesling and 1 part sugar, stir to dissolve)
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

I like to say I'm a lazy iron chef (I just cook with what I have around), renegade nutritionist, food policy wonk, and inveterate butter and cream enthusiast! My husband and I own a craft distillery in Northern Minnesota called Vikre Distillery (www.vikredistillery.com), where I claimed the title, "arbiter of taste." I also have a doctorate in food policy, for which I studied the changes in diet and health of new immigrants after they come to the United States. I myself am a Norwegian-American dual citizen. So I have a lot of Scandinavian pride, which especially shines through in my cooking on special holidays. Beyond loving all facets of food, I'm a Renaissance woman (translation: bad at focusing), dabbling in a variety of artistic and scientific endeavors.
