Sedagive

  • 2.5 oz. London Dry Gin
  • 0.5 oz. simple syrup
  • 0.5 oz. lime juice
  • 0.25 oz. Harvest Reisling vinegar

Shake with ice, then strain into cocktail glass with salted rim.

Gin from a Martini, simple syrup and a bit of lime juice from a Daiquiri and additional lime juice from a Margarita. The Abby Normal here is the vinegar, though it’s not so abnormal for me as I have a whole bunch of these unique flavorings that I’ve collected in the past year. This one I picked up in Mystic, CT, from Extra Virgin Oil. It definitely gives the drink some pucker with the lime that the salted rim (from a Margarita as well) helps to balance.

In the movie Young Frankenstein, “sedagive” is the ludicrous guess made at the being-strangled doctor’s charades attempt. Although this scene and line appears in the musical, the final ludicrous guess made is “Flying Down to Rio.” I don’t know. This is one of the many little changes made from the film that I question. But perhaps to accommodate you can throw an umbrella in the drink for a little Brazilian flair. Pra caramba!
