forbidden dance

1 oz Krogstad Aquavit
1 oz Bols Genever
3/4 oz Lustau Amontillado Sherry
1/2 oz Orgeat
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Velvet Falernum
1/4 oz Vanilla Syrup

Whip shake, pour into a Tiki mug, and fill with crushed ice. Garnish with a mint bouquet and freshly grated nutmeg.

Two Tuesdays ago, I began perusing The NoMad Cocktail Book and was somewhat surprised when I came across a tropical drink recipe. That one was called the Forbidden Dance by Wally Suarez, and it featured an unlikely spirits duo of aquavit and Genever; Vandaag, the now defunct bar in Manhattan, featured those two spirits, yet I do not recall a drink on the menu with both of them together. Once prepared, the nose snuck caraway, woody spice, and mint aromas from the Forbidden Dance. Next, a creamy pineapple, lime, and grape sip writhed into a caraway, nutty, vanilla, and allspice swallow.
