What could possibly be better than sharing and enjoying in life’s simpler pleasures with friends and loved ones?

This idea is at the heart of the Scandinavian lifestyle trends that many in contemporary culture have come to embrace. In an ever-present, all-encompassing quest to create this “just right” feeling when entertaining guests, star mixologist Selma Slabiak celebrates her Danish heritage by combining her personal and professional ethos for conviviality and togetherness with her expert, innovative knowledge of foraging and farm-to-table practice to present inventive drink and cocktail recipes in one multifaceted book. Slabiak shares with her readers elevated bartending expertise and finesse, layering familiar and unusual flavors and ingredients, along with Scandinavian traditions and nostalgic stories from her childhood in Denmark, in an inspiring, delicious, and original recipe book of Nordic-based cocktails—so we can all capture the extraordinary in the everyday.

Over 30 recipes for an enticing and creative array of artisanal cocktails, mixed drinks (alcoholic and nonalcoholic), and special snacks, utilizing seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients for all occasions. Includes instructive tips on foraging and pickling ingredients—whether from your local wilderness, farmer’s market, or grocery store.
