Is anything cooler than a bar on a glacier in Iceland? And amazingly, this is the first one
Having a drink at your local is all well and good, but what about sipping on a vodka cocktail north of the Artic Circle?
A new bar is opening on Iceland's gorgeous Langjökull Glacier, and it's actually the first of its kind.
It's the brainchild Reyka Vodka, the Icelandic spirit that uses water from the very glacier as its base.
The cosy pop-up is only open for five days next month, so if getting the coordinates and trekking there seems like too much hassle, head to their website where you can win a trip.
To get to the bar, which is open from October 16 to 20, you need to pass mesmerising geothermal hot springs, lakes, rivers and perhaps see some local wildlife.
The bar will be serving Reyka Vodka's signature cocktail, the Puffin Collins, for which you'll find a recipe below.
What you'll need:
50ml Reyka Icelandic Vodka
30ml fresh pink grapefruit juice
20ml elderflower cordial
2 x cherry tomato
50ml soda water
1 Muddle 1 tomato in shaker
2 Add ingredients (not the soda… explosive)
3 Shake like a Viking beast
4 Strain over ice in a highball
5 Top with soda and stir
6 Garnish with the other cherry tomato on the vine
