Birch Drop

Leó Ólafsson created this drink for a cocktail competition in Iceland. It is a celebration of the Nordic birch tree, which is used in many ways in the drink. The leafs are infused into the spirit and the sap cooked into a syrup.

– My initial thought was to combine a lemon drop and a whiskey sour, Ólafsson tells.
