Finnish Long Drinks

Finnish Long Drinks have become quite the popular option in the canned cocktail department. The story of how the Finnish Long Drinks came to be is quite interesting!

Let's go back to 1954 when Finland was recovering after World War II. It was the Summer Games and Finland needed to come up with a way to serve the abundance of visitors quickly! That's where the "Long Drink" comes into play.

In early 2018, the Finnish Long Drink finally made its way over to the United States, serving us up Finland's top-selling category of alcohol, the long drink!

Finnish Long Drink Options

The Finnish Long drink remains pretty traditional regarding options. There are four options to choose from.

First, we have the Finnish Long Drink Traditional. At 5.5% ABV, it's a crisp and refreshing citrus soda and gin mix!

Next, we have the Finnish Long Drink Strong. It's the stronger version of the Finnish Long Drink Traditional at 8.5% ABV.

If you're watching your calories, the Finnish Long Drink Zero is available. At 99 calories a can at 5% ABV, it gives you the same experience as the Finnish Long Drink Traditional but gives you the satisfaction of zero sugar and zero carbs!

And finally, if you like some dimension, we've got the Finnish Long Drink Cranberry. Like the Finnish Long Drink Traditional, it's 5.5% ABV with a cranberry kick!

All the long drinks use gin and natural flavors. Available in 6-packs, grab yours today at Liquorama and try these long drinks for yourself!

And finally, the Sip Shine Razz-Berry Shineade is a delicious blend of lemonade-flavored shine and a sweet raspberry finish.
