Drinking is an integral part of Danish culture. Proof of that is the traditional welcome drink and the great variety of beer. I have never seen so many types and brands of beer...!



The velkomstdrik is served shortly after guests arrive, and there are usually small snacks set out, such as nuts or potato chips. Some traditional favorites welcome drinks include:


Martini -- Not a dry Martini, but vermouth served either straight up in an aperitif glass, or on the rocks.

Kir -- Sparkling or white wine with blackcurrant liqueur.

Champagne, sekt or other sparkling wine.
