Wild Harmaakarhu spotted in Helsinki!
This blog has been about a lot of things, from consumer electronics to latest music rumours. We’ve written about luxury food and different types of beers that we support and diss, but I guess this is the first time we go into deep R&D in the drink section.
Last nite we had a little get-together among friends to celebrate my baby grrrl’s 1 st b-day. While opening presents and banging Spindbad’s cool 80’s mixtape we also experimented with some beverages. The outcome of this R&D session was Harmaakarhu AKA Grizzly. This simple refreshing drink resembles Clara or Shandy but it’s a bit more sour. So what is it you must be asking?
You could ask the bartender to give you a large, preferably a chilled glass and start filling it with:
• 1/3 Ice cubes
• 1/3 Karhu-beer
• 1/3 Lonkero (aka Harmaa, aka Gin Long Drink. A ready mixture of gin and grape juice, a strictly finnish thang)
You mix the ingredients and enjoy. It’s a purrrfect summer drink. And when the night approaches, you could add some extra gin to get your booty in the moody. Let Harmaakarhu take over!
