In this Moscow Mule variation, vodka is infused with lemongrass and grapefruit to make aquavit.Helen Rosner

In Sweden, home cooks make aquavit by infusing a clear spirit distilled from grain or potatoes with an infinite variety of spices, herbs, and other flavorful botanicals. Here, the classic Moscow Mule gets a Scandinavian twist with a grapefruit and lemongrass-infused aquavit. Restaurant Aquavit in New York City makes this cocktail with Crabbie's ginger beer, an alcoholic ginger beer with a deep, spicy flavor, though you can substitute any ginger beer you'd like.
