aquavit! part 2

sarah emily here. as a non-norwegian, I wanted to chime in about aquavit. once you taste it, you will immediately understand why it is the beverage of choice when eating rotting fish. this will sterilize you. the first time I tried it, the taste reminded me of the dentist. I can't explain it more than that. it's actually not bad, though. I wouldn't call it good, but it does have a very peculiar charm.

aquavit! yes!

It is just so exciting when Norwegian treats are featured on teh interwebz!

check out - an article about aquavit, a classic norwegian beverage that I drink chilled, and with beer. but not usually with rotting fish.
