Enjoy This Lingon Fizz Cocktail
Swedes love lingonberries, and they also love good beverages. This Lingon Fizz cocktail takes the sweetness of lingonberries and combines it with the tartness of lemon to make a refreshing drink that’s delicious any time of year.
For those who want to enjoy theirs with gin, we recommend Vikre Distillery’s Boreal Spruce Gin, which is distilled locally in Duluth, Minn. The spicy spruce adds another layer of flavor to the sweet lingonberry and tart lemon. For those who prefer a delicious beverage without alcohol, we would go for a spicy ginger beer (and skip the club soda).
Shake it all together with ice and pour into your favorite cocktail glass to enjoy.
