A Bornholm dram - over 100 years old - originally in the "no recipe left" category. Police officer Axel Nibe from Nexø, however, kept an eye on the whole thing in 1909, but only revealed the story in 1964: "Brændehandel og skibsproviantering H. S. Munch produced "ejn søder sup" (a sweet drink), which gave its name to the refreshment breaks during the ships' haul-out. When the slime was smeared with soap, the thirsty necks also got their "blødda", and hence the name sevablødda which is Bornholm and means to soften soap. The content is composed of many equal parts delicate spirit, and "Dænj ska drkkes te enj kanj saj Sevablødda ræjtit. When one cannot saj'ed more, enj shall la varra."
Scent: Spiced cinnamon, cherry and a hint of clove.
Colour: Deep, heavy and golden.
Sevablødda - how should it be enjoyed and served?
A traditional cherry dram from Bornholm should, in most people's opinion, be enjoyed as it is. Quite simple and only in its own form. But not everyone is as hardy as the old fishermen on the rocky island. At Bornholmspirits we have developed a cocktail that uses Sevablødda. The recipe follows:
- 4 cl. Sevablødda
- 12 cl. Gingerbeer
- Lime juice
Procedure: Pour the Sevablødda into a glass with ice cubes and fill up with Ginger Beer. Squeeze a little lime into the glass. Garnish with lime. See many of our other great recipes by clicking here. We use schnapps, vodka and more. Cocktails are allowed to experiment, as are our many different snaps.
