What is a Long Drink?

Long drink is a pre-mixed traditional citrus cocktail that is served throughout Finland. This drink was first created when the Finnish government commissioned a cocktail for guests attending the 1952 Summer Olympics that could be easily served in crowded bars and restaurants. Long Drink is a popular and growing alcohol category in Finland today.

Beer landscape is changing, younger shoppers are more impulsive and looking for new variety and flavors. Bevy is a unique cocktail inspired FMB that is designed for the younger, social drinker who is seeking the ultimate in flavor and refreshment.

The Long Drink - or Lonkero as it is known in Finland- was first created when the Finnish government commissioned a cocktail for guests attending the 1952 Summer Olympics. The country was preparing for many visitors, and they needed a drink that could be easily served in crowded bars and restaurants...hence, the Long Drink was born. Long Drink remains one of the most popular and growing BevAlc categories in Finland today.

Inspired by the national cocktail of Finland, our Bevy Long Drink blends citrus flavors with wild juniper berries for a refreshing new take on a Finnish classic. Sweet, tart, and packed with flavor, it might just be the secret to Nordic happiness.

Meiomi Wines are making their way to Frank Liquor! Meiomi offers three different wines that are sure to please!

Meiomi Pinot Noir - "A rich garnet color with a ruby edge, the wine opens to reveal lifted fruit aromas of bright strawberry and jammy fruit, mocha, and vanilla, along with toasty oak notes. Expressive boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, juicy strawberry and toasty mocha flavors lend complexity and depth on the palate. The well-integrated oak provides structure and depth seldom seen in Pinot Noir."

Meiomi Chardonnay - "Smooth, opulent layers of pineapple and lemon peel are heightened by sweet smells of honey, almonds, baking spices, and subtle custard notes. The full flavors are highlighted by succulent acidity and a clean, mineral-driven finish.

Meiomi Rose - "Delicately pink in color, Meiomi Rose is delightfully dry with vibrant acidity. The wine opens to delicate aromas of strawberry, rose petal and citrus. The palate offers mouthwatering flavors of juicy strawberry, watermelon, hay and grapefruit with a cool minerality on the finish."
