Sea wormwood schnapps belongs to the very old, traditional and very popular schnappses here in Denmark and other Scandinavian countries.
It's a highly enjoyable schnapps with a pleasant bitter, aromatic and characteristic taste and wonderful, unique flavours. The colour is pale green.
Serve with seafoods, smoked and marinated herrings, smoked salmons, soups, stews or cold dishes such as the Danish smorgasbord.
Excellent as appetizer and after-dinner drink - or turned into a liqueur.

The same with schnapps based on Common Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium).

This recipe is based on sea wormwood, which - in my opinion - has a fuller and less pungent taste than common wormwood.

Serve your sea wormwood schnapps at room temperature in suitable glasses. And remember to keep your schnapps bottle tightly closed and in a dark place before and between servings.
