Huginn and Muninn

For the sake of completeness, here's another drink I made for the theme-less TDN "Retro" back in December I never got around to posting:
Huginn and Muninn
  • 2 oz aged Aquavit
  • ½ oz Noily Prat Dry Vermouth
  • ½ oz Strega
  • 2 dashes celery bitters
stir and strain

The name refers to a pair of ravens that fly around the world to keep Odin in the loop about all its happenings, which alludes to the main ingredient of aquavit in the drink.  It's quite a dry cocktail, an aquavit martini almost, with a touch of sweetness from the strega, but very herbal flavors coming from all the ingredients. You have to enjoy the aquavit to like this drink, but hey, I do enjoy it...
