National Vodka Day: Aquavit

Aquavit is normally a vodka flavored with caraway seeds and anise, dill, fennel, coriander, and grains of paradise. Everyone makes their own version but caraway is the dominant flavor.

Aquavit comes to the US with the traditional flavors plus something for Americans, the flavors of white cranberries. Even though the spirit is rather flavored, it can mix nicely with a lot of other stuff, including Elderflower syrup or an orange liqueur.

We're finally getting something that Europeans have had in multiple iterations for quite some time. Now, if we could just figure out existentialism....
