Hallon-Lakrits Cocktail Recipe

Hallon-Lakrits Cocktail

On my trip to Stockholm in Sweden in July 2019, I got to know many Swedish cocktails. The Hallon-Lakrits cocktail is a festive candy drink that tastes just as the Swedish name promises – raspberries and licorice. So, just like the popular raspberry peel. Worth mentioning is also that this is a drink that one can very easily vary to adapt to their own taste preferences. This stated recipe is only a good basic recipe.


  • 60 ml/ 2 oz. Sourz Raspberry
  • 10 ml/ ⅓ oz. Pernod
  • 20 ml/ ¾ oz. Grenadine  
  • 10 ml/ ⅓ oz. lemon juice
  • 80 ml/ 2 ¾ oz. Sodawater


  1. Fill a glass half with crushed ice.
  2. Add Sourz Raspberry, Pernod, Grenadine and lemon juice.
  3. Stir so that everything mixes.
  4. Add the soda water and fill the rest of the glass with ice.
  5. Stir slightly and garnish with a lakrits stick.


It’s all about finding a balance in the flavors you like. If you think it’s too low in licorice, you can easily increase the amount of Pernod. If you want the drink a little sweeter, you can try to use Seven Up or Sprite instead of soda. Since they are a little sweeter, you may need to add some extra lemon juice. Do not be afraid to try different variants.
