The Swede '67
This week in 1967, all at once, Swedish traffic moved from the left to the right side of the road. The massive campaign surrounding “Dagen H” produced cultural touchstones like the contest-winning song “Keep to the Right, Svensson!” and underwear emblazoned with H logos. Suffice it to say, the move went smoothly. Toast its success with this nostalgic cocktail.
“The Swede ‘67,” as engineered by Stefan Lindstrom, master bartender at Stockholm restaurant/bar institution Riche.
In a rocks glass, muddle:
- 1 oz. Elderflower schnapps
- 2-3 fresh raspberries
Top with as much champagne as you see fit. Lift the glass with your left hand, sip, and set it down on the right side of table. Wait ten minutes and proceed with your right hand.
