So there are two extra interesting ingredients in this one, gooseberry and chervil. Gooseberries are these large light green berries that at least in Sweden are quite common. People even grow them in their gardens. In this drink gooseberry preserve is used, which we think works well. If you want a slightly more sour version of the drink, just use less of the jam.
And then there’s the chervil, an herb traditionally used in its dried state in several Swedish dishes. This made it extra fun to use in an elegant cocktail. We think it worked really well, and that it also made a nice garnish.
