Writing about Norway and the Nordic countries; Our Culture, History and Traditions of course includes drinking Habits. To me what to drink is an important part of our culture often combined with food or special occasions. So when invited by the one and only; Mrs. Lifecruiser at her Travel Blog for a Drinks Round the World meme, I could not refuse and wanted to party with her and her co-host: Travel Experta. Of course I do it with a personal touch, so here is more to the reason why, than the drink itself:

Celebrating Hole In One:

HoleInOne
My wife cheers with me after my first Hole In One.

The habits might various, but it’s normal to spend champagne on the flight (your fellow players) when you’ve made a Hole In One and I made it in July the 12th 2005. Since it was only me and Diane in the flight, we had a blast of a party :lol:

Norwegian Champagne:
You might ask what kind of champagne it was, but to be honest; I can’t remember. But while I’m at it – about food and drinks and habit and of course culture – let me tell you what Norwegian Champagne is: Moonshine and alkaziser (a kind of mineral salt). Yea, you know we Vikings could be rather rough, close to the nature and clever to make use of its resources :lol:

MoonShine:
I take it you know what it is and in older times it was quite normal to make your own spirits in Norway. It is illegal, but let me explain the dilation by a saying of a Danish friend of mine: No Norwegians admit they make moonshine, but everyone seams to know some that does! :lol:

This ‘Drinks Round the World’ meme is all about having fun together, so you can just show us a photo and/or write something. Then visit Mrs. Lifecruiser’s and leave a link to your drink post in the comments, so we all can come over and have a sip!

Cheers – or in Norwegian; Skål!
