Scandi Gin Drinks – With Ragnarok Gin

Scandinavia might be more famous for our love of aquavit and coffee than any other drinks – but there as everywhere, fancy tipples and drinks are gaining popularity. Craft breweries and small distilleries have been popping up over the last few years, and a relative newcomer in the space is Ragnarok – a gin distiller from Sweden.

The gin comes in a beautiful frosted glass bottle and is made from Swedish winter barley. So although gin is not thought of as a Scandi product, this one actually is.

We like to emphasise the Scandinavian-ness of it by pairing it with other typical Scandi flavours – the resulting drinks are delicious, refreshing and a nice change from your usual G & T.

Here are two of our favourites;

Elderflower Gin Fizz

1 part Ragnarok Gin
1 part Elderflower cordial
3 parts soda water
Squeeze of lime
Lime to garnish

In a glass of your choice – we like a short tumbler for this (but your favourite milk glass will also do the trick, just make sure it is clean) pour in the gin and elderflower cordial. Add 2-3 ice cubes. Add lime juice (from 1/4 lime or to taste) and top up with soda water. Stir until combined and garnish with more lime.

Lingonberry Collins
A Scandi twist on the classic Tom Collins.

1 part Ragnarok gin
1 part lingonberry cordial (we like Tillmans as it is not so sweet)
1 tsp sugar or sugar syrup
Squeeze of lemon
Soda water

In a glass of your choice – we like a hi-ball or similar for this – pour in the gin and lingonberry cordial, plus sugar or sugar syrup if using. Stir until combined. Add ice cubes (if it is hot outside, to fill the glass). Squeeze in about a tablespoonful of lemon juice (or to taste) and top up with soda water. Stir again, garnish with fresh or frozen lingonberries if you have them.


For more recipes – visit Ragnarok here – our lingonberry collins is based on theirs, we simple tweaked it a little to suit our tastebuds, we urge you to do the same.
