A modern update on an old-school classic: This cocktail was created by Shawn Soole at the new Foxtrot Tango Whisky bar at the Doubletree by Hilton Victoria.

1½ oz (45 mL) Sheringham Akvavit
½ oz (15 mL) Bols Ginger Liqueur
¾ oz (22 mL) Carrot Lime Cordial*

Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake well and double strain into a large chilled coupe. If you like, garnish with a ribbon of sweet pickled carrot on a skewer. Serves 1.

*Note: To make the Carrot Lime Cordial, mix 1 cup (250 mL) lime juice, 1 cup (250 mL) carrot juice and 2 2/3 cups (500 g) granulated sugar in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a simmer, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Pour into bottles and keep chilled for up to two weeks. Makes about 3 cups (750 mL).
