Want a delicious twist that will send a worn out mule to pasture?
1oz Skaalvenn Aquavit
Splash of ginger beer
Squeeze of lime
Enjoy over ice
Be careful though, at 100 proof our Aquavit is what we call “Viking Strength”
You can’t spend 4 months in an ice house without emerging looking a little pasty. Don’t hide it — flaunt it. Put on your favorite pair of shorts and raise a toast to your glorious pearly legs. Just add Skaalvenn Vodka and coffee liqueur to a glass of ice and top it off with a splash of heavy cream and a garnish of lefse. If we can’t make fun of ourselves, who can we make fun of? Oh, that’s right — Iowans.
“What’s that now? You’re leaving already? OK, but how about an olive for the road? You look so thin, have you been working out? Did I tell you about my celery garden–Oh you’ve just got to hear this story before you go” – You’re going to be here awhile so you are going to need some extras. Mix Skaalvenn Vodka, bloody Mary mix, 2 full skewers of olives, celery, and a meat stick or bacon. Add pan fried shrimp if it’s a really long goodbye.
Why wait for the perfect weather to enjoy a taste of the tropics? Even on the coldest Minnesota winter day, this tall drink of coconut water will give you the warm fuzzies. Just add Skaalvenn Rum to your favorite coconut water and give it a twist of lime. If you’re cuckoo for coconuts, this is the drink for you.
Like a Minnesota snowbank in March, this white and grey mixture holds the promise of better things to come. Combine a wintery mix of Skaalvenn Vodka, dry vermouth and a dash of olive brine in a glass filled with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with blue cheese-stuffed olives. This drink will warm you up from the inside out.
Need to relax after your roadwork-filled, hour-long commute? Get back in the sane lane with this refreshing rum and peach pitstop. Heat a pan over high heat and toss in rosemary sprigs. Then dip cut sides of peaches in sugar, add them to the pan cut-side down and cook until sugar caramelizes. Cut the peaches into quarters and put them in a pitcher with about 2 tablespoons of raw sugar — muddle to release juices. Add Skaalvenn Rum and ice and stir, stir, stir. Pour and garnish with an uncooked rosemary sprig. This one takes a little bit of work, but the destination’s worth it.
The buzz you’re hearing is the excitement over this perfect Minnesota summer cocktail. Just muddle blackberries, mint leaves, sugar, Skaalvenn Rum and lime juice in a glass. Add ice and club soda and stir. Garnish with a sprig of mint for a perfectly non-pesky party drink.
