Påskmust is like a sweet, spicy root beer containing hops, sugar, malt aroma and spices, and no alcohol. It’s an essential component of any Easter-time meal.
It is the Easter version of julmust, the Christmas drink that far outsells Coca Cola every December. Every year Swedes debate whether the two beverages taste the same (they do).
