This aquavit (or akvavit) cocktail should be a bartender staple. It goes against all the norms and mixes three very different, very bold flavours: Vinland Aquavit, coffee, and Aperol. Though each have such unique flavour profiles, when brought together, are like the perfect ménage à trois. It'll mess with your head and bring your taste buds to their metaphorical knees. Like its namesake cult classic film, this drink is a ride you didn't expect you'd enjoy. Keep scrolling for this amazing aquavit cocktail recipe.
