How to Hygge
1. Develop a fortifying morning ritual.
Take a hike with turkaffe (coffee breaks). Add more spice to your coffee with a little vanilla extract.
2. Embrace soul-warming foods.
Gíslason shares recipes like a potato soup with smoked haddock and dill that is perfect for a self-care supper.
3. Make hostess gifts.
It’s the ultimate hygge gesture of gratitude. Make aromatic sugars with lavender or, for a Scandinavian touch, juniper.
4. Try new riffs on classic cocktails.
Although hygge embraces nostalgia, Gíslason encourages fresh takes. Try his Old Tom cocktail, with smoky mezcal and sweet vermouth.
