One of the best summer drinks in the world is Long drink, Lonkero, a bitter sweet combination of gin and grapefruit lemonade. It wipes away the thirst and doesn't make you feel as much of a balloon as beer does.

Lonkero was invented for Helsinki Olympic games in 1952. You can get the real Lonkero (made from  gin and grapefruit lemonade) from Alko - the version sold in the grocery stores is a cheap copy made thorough fermentation, and it doesn't taste as good as the real thing.

Is it still too cold for a Lonkero at balcony?


  1. I'd say it's already safe but based on my experience... be careful with drinks and balconies :)

    1. :D Sticking with "drinking on balcony" and skipping the "storing on balcony" part.
