More Holiday Hospitality: Aquavit

This weekend is a good time to entertain friends. Given the wintry weather, party hosts may want to check out Table Matters where Jason Wilson writes about Aquavit.

Mr. Wilson reports that he developed a taste for Aquavit while in Copenhagen, drinking it "ice cold in small frozen shot glasses, accompanied by smorrebrød, the traditional open-faced, rye-bread sandwiches piled high with smoked salmon, pickled herring or smoked eel." Sounds delicious. His post includes a recipe for an interesting Aquavit cocktail, too.

Salmon on rye? Aquavit cocktails? Let the winter winds howl.
