What is The Lemonade Test? An experiment to get to know your palate. It has all the basic elements of cocktails: the sour, the sweet and the dilution. Once you figure out what kind of lemonade you like, that can give you powerful insight into what kind drinks and cocktails you like, and especially how you can tweak the proportions to better fit to your taste.
Wild Waters – How the VilliVesi company is leading the way with sustainable and exotically Nordic soft drinks
—-N.B THIS POST CONTAINS A GIVEAWAY FOR OUR FINNISH FOLLOWERS!—-
As you know, we have a real passion when it comes to preparing delicacies with wild food and trying to bottle up all the amazing smells and flavors of the forest (like with our Spruce Tip Herbal Liqueur or The Lingonberry Forest Liqueur). That is why when we discovered VilliVesi we were so glad to collaborate with them. The values of Villi Vesi immediately resonated with us as they only use natural ingredients, 100% recycled plastic for their bottles, sustainable energy and have zero carbon footprint on the planet! Despite being so good on their own, we still developed some great cocktails and mocktails using their Blueberry & Spruce Tip, Juniper & Lemon and Apple & Ginger flavored carbonated waters. We really hope you’ll like these recipes and try to recreate them at home, we really put our hearts in these and can guarantee you we absolutely love the result!
A signature Nordic homemade liqueur, an aromatic Lingonberry Forest Liqueur and the recipe for a Nordic Lingonberry Aperitivo. With these recipes I wanted to be able to “bottle up”, so to speak, this memory of walking on a brisk autumn day in the forest with my grandma with buckets full of lingonberries.
