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.



  • 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


  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.

This cocktail was created by one of our Umgås writers, a former bartender and cocktail enthusiast.
