Rainmaker

Nordic bartenders are inspired by their surroundings again and again. Gabriel Valdés was part of the team that designed a drink menu based on the different landscapes in Sweden for Pharmarium in Stockholm.

The west coast of Sweden and its heavy summer rains have inspired this drink called Rainmaker.

– We wanted to capture the taste of rain. And we did it really well with some golden beetroot juice and akvavit from the west coast, adding some vodka for a bit of a kick, and then birch smoked cotton candy for the visual representation of a thundercloud, Valdés tells.
