Vit Vit Mule

Vit Vit Mule presented by Cocktail Detour


When we recently received volume 2 of Åhus Akvavit’s cocktail book, we were immediately drawn to this recipe. The freshness of lemongrass combined with stingy ginger beer and the very Scandinavian akvavit creates a very exotic but still balanced drink.⁠

Using akvavit in drinks is becoming more and more common, and we dig it! It’s a product packed with flavour, often from spices and herbs. To us akvavit is often more exciting compared to plain vodka, and it can really bring character to a drink.⁠

Åhus Akvavit is kind of begging to be put into cocktails. It’s an akvavit full of flavour, without overpowering. That’s why we think it’s such a fitting product for drinks. Now obviously Åhus Akvavit think the same themselves as they’re releasing all these gorgeous recipe books.⁠


Recipe from Åhus Akvavit


1,75 oz Åhus Akvavit⁠
2 cm fresh lemongrass⁠
0,75 oz lime juice⁠
0,5 oz simple syrup⁠
ginger beer⁠


Vigorously smash the lemongrass at the bottom of a shaker, before adding all other ingredients except the ginger beer. Shake with lots of fresh and fine strain into a generous glass. Add some new ice cubes to the glass and top up with ginger beer. Garnish with lemongrass.⁠
