Is there such a thing as a fancy karsk?
The original Norwegian drink of moonshine and coffee called karsk is more dangerous than tasty, but with a modern twist the idea of coffee and spirits can be quite good. Back in the 1800’s moonshine was drunk as medicine for both the body and the soul, and it was said that the addition of warm coffee made the effect even better. Now when fall is here we might need a pick-me-up cocktail. This delicious variation is made and served by Jørgen Dons, one of the leading bartenders in Norway and a native of the capital of karsk, Trondheim. And the garnish… well, it is our tribute to #movember coming up. Donate money here.
3 cl vanila vodka
