On a visit to the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, MN I was introduced to the signature cocktail at their delightful Fika Café, the Stockholm 75. This cocktail is a variation on the French 75 which uses gin, champagne, simple syrup and lemon. The ASI feature combines aquavit, ginger syrup, lemon juice, Cava and a twist of orange. So incredibly refreshing and delicious and perfect with their smoked salmon plate!

I decided to create my own style of a Stockholm 75 that would have a wintery, holiday flair and be suited for cocktail parties and COOKIES! I started with my favorite domestic aquavit, Norden’s Original Taffel Style. You can learn a bit more about Norden here: Cranberry Aquavit Tonic with Swedish Rye and Lingonberry Grilled Cheese

Next, I selected a Cava with a flavor profile that suited the cocktail. Cava is Spanish sparkling wine and is very popular in Stockholm. I agree with the ASI that this is a good choice of sparkler for the cocktail! The Conquilla Cava has a lovely citrusy component with hints of botanicals and orange–much like the Norden Aquavit.

I added lingonberry preserves, simple syrup and fresh lemon juice to a shaker with the Norden Aquavit and ice. After straining into a champagne flute, I topped off the drink with the Cava and a twist of lemon peel for visual appeal. The resulting cocktail is full of berries and spice and everything nice that you want in a holiday happy hour drink! I think it is just delightful paired with lingonberry-filled Linzer cookies!
