’Kender ik’ i morgen’//’Don’t know tomorrow’ is a floral, citrussy and sweet explosion that brings the show off of the stage and onto the bar. The beautifully unique cocktail uses a PH indicator which gives it a magical color changing element and makes it the perfect showstopper in your home bar. The official NorthSide 2023 cocktail took it’s beginnings in the music. 3 upcoming artists chose a NorthSide 2023 name that they were looking forward to the most and based an analysis off of this. Njord’s own mixologist and festival bar boss Hannah Jerg then translated these analyses into three distinct cocktails. We held a competition to decide just one out of the three cocktails which would become the official NorthSide 2023 cocktail.
The winning cocktail was based on an analysis of Gilli contained the keywords: rhythmic, real, mystical and Spain. Translated into a cocktail language this became rhythmic//shaken – real//original* - mystical//color changing - Spain//citrus fruit.
*The original definition of a cocktail contains the components: spirit, bitters, sugar and water.

The official Njord X NorthSide gin from 2023.
With a little help from the god Njord, vikings crafted ships and foraged nature a thousand years ago in Eskelunden where NorthSide festival now has its epicenter. This limited edition gin is based on upcycled tonic and distilled test brew from this year's Jacobsen NorthSide beer based on leftover juniper tea from Njord's gin production. Aromatic botanicals such as sloe flower, cherry plum flower, purple dead-nettle, willow and rowan are lead singers together with juniper berries and the distilled test brew. The distinct pink tone comes from the infusion of sloe and cherry plum flowers.
