Frozen Spirits

Pin It

It is quite common in Eastern Europe and Scandinavian countries to keep a bottle of Aquavit, Schnapps or vodka in the freezer and serve it ice cold in a small chilled glass as an aperitif. In Russia, when vodka is drunk neat and ice cold as an aperitif, the tradition is to raise a toast and smash the empty glass by throwing it into a glowing fireplace. This is to prevent the glass being used to toast anyone else’s health.
