Last year, at the Food and Wine show, I bumped into a friend of mine, Olivia. She was like “Hey! Go and taste some cocktails at the Sedgwick’s stand!” while waving a pack with a 750ml bottle and two branded shot enamel mugs. Indeed, I went on to taste a Sedgwick’s and Lemonade cocktail, see featured image. I loved it! Ever since then, I make it up every time there’s a get together with a crowd of people. The cocktail is always a winner!
Recently, I got introduced to a mixture of Sedgwick’s Original Old Brown with Ginger Ale, pictured below. You simply add a tot to 200ml of ginger ale or lemonade and plenty of ice. I also add sliced lemons and you are good to go! The first time I made the cocktail it was for my former colleagues, I’ll be honest, we added more than a tot but it was all good! One can serve cocktails as a welcome drink at a party, it’s a simple way of getting people to relax and loosen up without hurting your pockets.
A 750ml bottle is available at only R28.

Even the most conservative user of alcohol would have to agree that SA's Old Brown Sherry is a warmer. Enjoyed moderate and self respecting.
