Even vikings need to take a break from all of that pillaging sometimes. What better way to relax than a quick and easy canned cocktail. This three ingredient fix uses sweet and spiced Swedish punsch, banana liqueur, and pineapple hard cider to create a funky, refreshing drink to take your mind off of whatever battle you're coming from or headed to. So drop that battle ax (or dish towel, or rake) and take a little vacation in a can.

Viking Vacation (makes 1 drink)

  • 1 1/2 oz Swedish punsch (we used Kronan)
  • 3/4 oz banana liqueur (we used Bols, but Giffard makes a great one too)
  • 10 oz Austin Eastciders Pineapple Cider (in the can)

Pop open the can of cider and pour out—oh, who are we kidding, drink—2 ounces. Pour in the punsch and liqueur.

With a straw or the end of a barspoon stir the mixture gently within the can.

Garnish like a tiki drink (however you want and with enough flair to make it a vacation-y) and serve with a straw.
