Viking Funeral

- via Justin Godsey, The Sexton, Seattle, WA

A warm cider drink for grownups that's herbal and not too sweet.

  • 2 oz Riktig Caraway Aquavit
  • 1 Tbl Maple Syrup
  • Squeeze of Lemon
  • Hot spiced cider
  • Orange peels and cloves (for garnish)

Mix all ingredients in a warmed mug. For the garnish, cut lemon and orange peels and rounds with different cookie cutters, spike with whole cloves, and float on top. If you're serving for a large party, do the cider in a crock pot and set the bottle of aquavit on the side, so that guests can spike their own cider - that way the alcohol doesn't cook off as it sits.
