Some cocktails are delicious. Others are whimsical.The Funny in Sweden is both. Originating in The Liquor Rooms in Dublin, the Funny in Sweden blends sweet whisky with sour humour. It was created by The Liquor Rooms’ own Swedish bartender John Norrman, prone to spouting ridiculous jokes cheekily dubbed as funny only in Sweden. The Funny in Sweden comes with a tiny scroll tied to the stem of the glass, subjecting the drinker to a joke while they savour a delightful libation.

Customers can submit their own jokes, as long as they’re not too funny, of course.
