Wanting to develop my own original cocktail, it was discovered there was a restaurant in D.C. that made one similar to what I had in mind, but not quite. Mine is alder smoked, the herring, the pickling solution and the cocktail ingredients. The result being, "Mr. T's Scandinavian Salute".
In honor of all those who provide us with this delicacy from the sea.
Mr. T's Scandinavian Salute
A goodly sum of gin or vodka, a splash of vermouth, shaken not stirred then alder smoked. Add a garnish of smoked pickled herring. -- and that's it.
