Berkshire Room's Nordic Gold

Berkshire Room's Nordic Gold

The Berkshire Room shares one of its regular house cocktails, the Nordic Gold, to help us get through these times. An excellent way to enjoy their unique flavor pairings even if we can't enjoy the booths. We hope you enjoy the delightful flavors a tangy Aquavit as much as we did, a delicious treat that is perfect for summer evenings. 


  • 2 oz Norden Aquavit
  • 1/2 oz Apologue Saffron Liqueur
  • 3/4 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
  • 2 dash Cardamom bitters
  • Mint leaves


    Add all ingredients into a shaker tin and shake over ice. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with mint.
