Icelanders usually drink their vodka neat, in order to have the smoothest sips possible they took matters into their own hands. Iceland’s Reyka Vodka was born, made by arctic water and geothermal energy.
These thin crepe-like pancakes make an excellent addition to afternoon tea, or spread with jam and folded up with whipped cream, they are a delicacy fit for festive occasions.
