Fulla För Kärlekens Skull

Robin Nockmar is a bartender from Norrköping, Sweden. His drink Fulla För Kärlekens Skull features local gin, lingonberry and cherry. This sweet and sour drink is a perfect treat for dark evenings in late autumn.

Robin's drink is named after a song by the group Eldkvarn.

– They put Norrköping on the map with their music.

The name of the song and the drink translates "Drunk for the sake of love" and it is a tribute to those moments when you look back in life with joy. Robin created this drink when he was planning to move back to his home town Norrköping from Stockholm.

– I listened to this song, which is about how a guy leaves Norrköping and goes to these beautiful cities, and cries because he is going to miss home. And I was feeling a little bit like that, because I was a little bit homesick. This is a Nordic drink designed with Norrköping in my mind.

For Robin, this is a drink that represents the Nordic taste culture.

– It contains Nordic inclusions that both feel clean and simple but if you use them correctly, something complex and magical occurs.
