Kronan Swedish Punsch

What It Is: For rum drinkers who want to up the ante, Sweden (of all places) makes this blend of sugar cane spirits, primarily Batavia Arrack, a southeast Asian spirit imported at one time by the Swedish East India Company and mixed by sailors with West Indian rum and spices.

What It’s Like: Swedish Punsch is somewhat like a sweeter, funkier, smokier rum.

How to Drink It: It is perfect chilled with lime in the classic, long-forgotten “Dr. Cocktail.” Or enjoy it slightly warmed on a cold winter night in Stockholm, where it is often drunk with pea soup on Thursdays.
