Signature Drink - The Nordic Skipper

The Nordic Skipper

Want to try your hand at mixology? The Nordic Skipper comes compliments of Robyn Cleveland, bartender at The Ravens Club in Ann Arbor (and president of the Detroit chapter of the U.S. Bartenders Guild). Cleveland’s inspiration for this complex drink comes from Scandinavia; the cherry syrup reinterprets Glogg, a Swedish holiday punch that is similar to a mulled wine.
