How to shine at breakfast on May 17


After two years of quiet May 17th celebrations, many are ready for the good, old-fashioned way to celebrate Norway’s Constitution Day. Since the national holiday falls on a Tuesday this year, many will appreciate a soft drink with a low or no alcohol percentage. We give you here the recipe for a delicate party!

The national holiday often begins with the traditional May 17 breakfast, followed by a train, barbecue or dinner. For many, it’s a long day, and if you’re going to cook from morning to night, you might want to choose drinks with little or no alcohol.

Cool drink with low alcohol percentage
With Martini Fiero, the drink can be easily mixed with tonic: one part Martini Fiero and two parts tonic. To enjoy Martini Fiero, you don’t need to open a bottle of sparkling wine.

Jesper Høst, a former Norwegian bartending champion and now director of business activation at Bacardi, says the red drink is perfect for different foods that are often served on May 17.

– Spritz is soft, fresh and easy to drink. What’s more, the drink contains an alcohol percentage comparable to that of beer, and goes perfectly with a traditional May 17 breakfast of cold meats, cheeses and scrambled eggs.

If you have a lot of time, you can, for example, make the cannoli for the dessert. These are Sicilian pipe biscuits, filled with ricotta cream with chocolate, pistachios and cherries. But only if you have cream and berries available, you already have what it takes for a delicious May 17 dessert.
