Lingonberry Sour

When I think of Lingonberry, I think of Ikea’s checkout area where the smell of warm cinnamon buns are baking, packages of Swedish meatballs and other tempting imported treats are located.

My friend Mark Barclay and I thought about creating a cocktail using Lingonberry which is a Scandinavian berry used in jams, syrups, desserts and other cooking. The results are a very smooth and refreshing flavor on the palate, a light cocktail for Valentines or any day of the year, taste and see.
