As kleinbl00 said, akvavit is best served ice cold. These days it's usually served at christmas, easter and midsummer, paired with different kinds of pickled herring, where it acts as a palette cleanser.

    You can give us herring

    And you can give us sill

    But you will still be erring

    Unless you also will

    Give us a glass of Akvavit

    That sure smells sweet

    To Swedes in heat

    It gives the fish its feet

    It makes the dish complete

Well I don't have herring, but the aquavit is in the freezer and I'll have a lovely Christmas glass tonight.
