Drink Nordic offers tips, drinks and stories from the Nordics
After a year of research, drink recipe hunting, countless interviews and thousands of photos. Drink Nordic is ready to share a comprehensive look into Nordic cocktails.
Drink Nordic is a project by Eetu Topo and Laura Hujanen, two prominent Finnish drinks industry personalities, bartenders and journalists. Together with almost 70 Nordic bartenders we have collected drinks from all around the Nordics.
We set out on this journey with a question in mind: What does the Nordic drink taste, look and feel like? Our discoveries have been curated into a book published in Finnish by Karttakeskus in October 2019 and now as a website, which will hopefully become a source of inspiration for people around the world who are interested in Nordic lifestyle and drinks.
The website will include drink recipes, tips from bartenders to home bartenders and stories from Oslo to Kotka and from Copenhagen to Rovaniemi. Here is one example of the recipes found on the Drink Nordic website. The Field by Sebastian Baarsen has captured the flavour of Swedish Midsummer perfectly.
