04/23/09: Moby Dick

The association between writers and drinking is long and dubious, so this week I present literary reference cocktails. However, I did not find any connection between Melville and alcohol (this is probably a good thing). But I did want to include the Moby Dick, because it is a little different. This drink was created for the cocktail list at the 2nd incarnation of a Swedish restaurant in my neighborhood. They have just opened and it is still a work in progress; so I’ve made some changes that I think will help it a long.

Moby Dick 

-2oz. Aquavit
-1oz. Sambuca
-1 Anchovy, for garnish

Combine spirits in a shaker over ice. Rim a chilled cocktail glass with sugar. Pat the anchovy as dry as possible to remove all fish oil from the outside. Strain into rimmed glass and present anchovy across the top on a long toothpick.
