Toast to the Weekend: The Ragnar

I literally just got back from a weeklong work trip in Sweden a couple of hours ago. It was great to be home for a few days. When I wasn't in meetings, I got to spend time with my mom and some friends. I visited our new Street Food at Arlanda Airport in Stockholm and I hit the streets to try some of my favorite Swedish street vendors to get my wurst fix (for research purposes, of course). I stopped by my favorite fish market in Gothenburg, the Fish Church and checked out the lobsters that just came into season.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate the fact that my work allows me to go home as often as I do. To wrap this week up, I'd like to share a recipe for a Swedish-style cocktail my friend Selim showed me - named Ragnar, this cocktail is just the right thing to help refresh you at the end of a long week and start the weekend off right. I'd like to wrap this week up by toasting family and friends, the people who support us the most in life.

In a highball glass, add 1 part currant flavored vodka like Absolut Kurrant, 1/4 part lime juice, and top off with 2 cubes of ice and Sprite. Serve and enjoy!

As always, be sure to drink responsibly and have a great weekend.
