The New Norseman is a refreshing cocktail crafted here at Troll Hallen.
This popular cocktail pays tribute to the Norwegian heritage of our legendary namesake, Stein Eriksen. His favorite drink was the strong, aged spirit, Aquavit. Naturally, Aquavit is the primary ingredient in The New Norseman.
The original botanical recipe for Aquavit has remained unchanged since its creation over 200 years ago. It is distilled with a special blend of Nordic herbs and spices to give it a distinct flavor. The result is an extraordinarily smooth and well-balanced spirit with leading notes of caraway and star anise and with finer hints of vanilla and sherry.
We paired Aquavit with our house made ginger beer to create a crisp flavor duet. Specifically, the cocktail is composed of the following:
1.5oz Linie Aquavit
3.0oz Segura Vida Cava
1.5oz House Made Ginger Elixir
Splash of Lime
Top with Soda Water
Garnish with Candied Ginger
Serve in a tall collins glass
