How to drink Luettje Lage - Step 1: Glass held with one fingerwidth of space to the top of the Glass


When you pour the liquid observe the measuring line. Do not pour too much liquid into the glasses (especially the Schnappsglass) otherwise you will spill the drink.

  • Take the beerglass into you hand and put all fingers to the glass.

Important: leave about a fingers width of space to the top of the glass (this will work no matter how big or small your fingers are).

How to drink Luettje Lage - Step 2:  Glass with the middle Finger pushed out to put in the Schnappsglass

  • Push your middle finger out - all other fingers remain attached to the glass !

(Persons with really small/slim fingers may push both the middle and the ring finger forward. The following remarks to the ringfinger then apply to the little/pinkie finger)

How to drink Luettje Lage - Step 3:  adjust the Schnappsglas to be approx 5 mm above the Beerglass

  • Put the Schnapps-/Shotglass between your pushed out middle finger and your fingers attached to the glass.

The Ringfinger is between the two glasses and rests on top of the foot of the Schnappsglass - Now adjust the Shotglass for it to be about 5 mm above the Beerglass.

How to drink Luettje Lage - Step 4:  Schnappsglass slightly tilted and touching the rim of the Beerglass

  • Use your Ringfinger to push the stem of the schnappsglass so that the top touches the beerglass!

(Important: the two glasses must touch so that the Schnaps can flow from the Shotglass into the Beerglass)

Now: Stand Tall  (Important: do not lean forward in fear of spilling the drink) !



Now Drink:

  • drink exactly opposite the shotglass, allowing the Schnaps to flow directly into the beerglass)
  • all in one go
  • speedy, but not hastily!
  • Head held high and when you drink look into the sky / to the ceiling.

Important: do not tilt the glasses (like drinking beer or wine) but knock your head back.
