The Sagittarius

Say "skal!" to a new drink with a Swedish vibe that's dedicated to Sagittarians. The base is Karlsson's Gold Vodka, distilled from Swedish potatoes only once, yielding an earthy flavor; we added pepper, dill, tonic, and a hint of lime. The accompanying nibble is easy to make: Mix cream cheese with lemon zest and pepper, spread on rye bread, and top with smoked salmon.
