DIY Finnish Lonkero (a.k.a. Long Drink)


"My family recently went on a vacation to Finland. In addition to enjoying the food and scenery, many of us fell in love with the lonkero, or long drink. This is a strictly Finnish drink made by combining cheap gin with citrus. The most common flavor is grapefruit, which is reproduced here. Lonkero is not sold in the US so I decided to try to copy it by referring to web sites from other tourists who tried to copy it and reading the ingredients on the company's web site."

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Add more gin as desired. A shot of alcohol in the US. is usually between 2 tablespoons and 1/4 cup.
  • You can play with the ingredient amounts but I find it tastes best when you use slightly more club soda than grapefruit juice.
  • Substitute club soda for a lemon-lime soda (such as 7Up®, Sprite®, or Sierra Mist®), if desired. The key is to get the bubbles and the different citrus flavor. It's a bit sweeter with Sierra Mist®.

Nice drink! I played around with the proportions a little too much and made it a bit sour, but that's my own fault. Still quite good.
