Fjellbekk (Mountain Stream) Instructions

The Fjellbekk cocktail is a refreshing and invigorating drink that will transport you to the beautiful mountain streams of Norway. With its blend of citrus and herbal flavors, this cocktail is perfect for both warm summer days and cozy winter nights.

To make a Fjellbekk cocktail, start by filling a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add two parts aquavit, a traditional Scandinavian spirit with herbal and spice notes. Next, add one part freshly squeezed lemon juice for a burst of citrus freshness.

To balance out the flavors, add half a part of simple syrup. If you prefer a less sweet cocktail, you can adjust the amount of simple syrup to your taste. Shake all the ingredients together vigorously for about 15 seconds to chill the drink and mix the flavors.

Strain the cocktail into a chilled glass filled with ice cubes. Garnish with a lemon twist or sprig of fresh thyme to add an extra touch of elegance and aroma. The Fjellbekk cocktail is now ready to be enjoyed. Sip slowly and savor the flavors as you imagine yourself nestled in the serenity of a remote mountain stream.

For an alternative twist, you can also try using grapefruit juice instead of lemon juice for a slightly tangier flavor. Or, if you want a stronger herbal presence, you can infuse the aquavit with fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary before making the cocktail.

Whether you're lounging on a beach in the summertime or cozying up by a fireplace in the depths of winter, the Fjellbekk cocktail will transport you to the serene beauty of a mountain stream. Its refreshing and herbal flavors will awaken your senses and leave you feeling rejuvenated. Give this cocktail a try and let its invigorating tastes whisk you away to the tranquil landscapes of Norway.

Best served in a Highball Glass.
