Sweden is ready to show you how nature makes the best bar ever. After the success of Sweden’s Edible Country, where participants get to use ingredients from nature and create their own fine dining experience, Sweden is trying to replicate that with Drinkable Country, creating the largest open-air bar in the world.

Visitors can book one of the 16 tables spread over the entire country. Swedish beverage experts from all different parts of Sweden will guide guests through creating their own drinks from ingredients they’ll look for in nature, dubbed the “100-million-acre natural pantry.” Ready-made beverages will also be available for purchase.

“The DIY recipes enable visitors to explore Swedish nature through world-class taste experiences,” says Jens Heed, program director of food travel at Visit Sweden, in a press release. “The country’s 100 million-acre pantry of fruit, berries, vegetables, and crystal-clear spring water is open to everyone. We call it the Drinkable Country — the world’s largest open-air bar.”

Drink menus will reflect both the region and season the table is located in, and none of the drink recipes have alcohol. When guests create their drinks, they will choose if they want alcohol and how much they’d like to add, according to preference. Children are welcome to join for the experience. Ticket prices for each table vary.
