Swe-Dishes (And Drinks): Malmö Mule

Mules are a must during the hot summer months. From the original Moscow Mule, made with vodka, to a Kentucky Mule, made with bourbon, and the endless varieties of fruits, herbs and shrubs that can be added in, there’s a mule for everyone.

Today, we’re sharing our take – created by one of our writers – on a mule that uses aquavit, the Malmö Mule. Hints of caraway and fennel from the Scandinavian spirit give this mule an herbaceous and slightly savory flavor.

We hope you enjoy.

Skål!

Ingredients

  • 2 oz your choice of aquavit
  • .5 oz simple syrup
  • 1 oz fresh squeezed lime
  • 2 oz ginger beer
  • 6-8 mint leaves
  • Garnish: lime wheel, sprig of mint

Directions

  1. Combine mint leaves, simple syrup, lime juice and aquavit in a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously.
  2. Double strain over fresh ice.
  3. Top with ginger beer.
  4. Add garnish.
  5. Sip and enjoy.

Tip: Try muddling in fresh wild strawberries to sweeten things up. Or if you enjoy more tart cocktails, muddle in a few lingonberries.
