Akvavit is a traditional flavored spirit similar to vodka, mainly produced in Scandinavia, where it's been made since the 15th century. Akvavit gets very its distinctive flavor from spices and herbs, with the main spice being caraway. One would normally serve it very cold in a small shot glass, but for those who find the flavor a bit... "intense", this lovely little cocktail makes for a sweet, mellower substitute. Skål!
