Citrus Scandi


Kathy Casey pairs this drink with raw oysters. She puts a little aquavit in a small mister and spritzes the shucked oysters just before serving them.

  1. 1 orange wedge
  2. 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  3. 1/4 ounce aquavit
  4. 1/4 ounce Cointreau or other triple sec
  5. 3/4 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
  6. 1/4 ounce Simple Syrup
  7. Ice
  8. 1 orange twist
  1. Squeeze the orange wedge into a cocktail shaker, drop it in, then add the vodka, aquavit, Cointreau, grapefruit juice and Simple Syrup. Fill the shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe or 2 shot glasses; pinch the orange twist over the drink and discard.
