Ok, Magnus Nilsson's Lemonade Cocktail Recipe Really Slays
At its simplest and most original, this beverage consists of only porter beer (dark beer), a sweet fortified wine (like port or Madeira) and a Swedish soft drink (soda) called sockerdricka. Today, most recipes for mumma also contain gin and some of them contain cardamom and different citrus flavourings as well. Mumma is a popular drink to have with Christmas dinner.
Make sure that the serving jug (pitcher), glasses and all the ingredients are ice cold when you start; it will foam like nothing you have ever seen otherwise.
Preparation time: 10 minutes Makes: 1 litrel 34fl oz (4 1/2 cups)
500 ml/17 fl oz (2 cups plus 1 tablespoon) porter beer, chilled 330 ml/11 fl oz (1 1/3 cups) sockerdricka or another lemonade, chilled 100 ml/3 1/2 fl oz (1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon) sweet Madeira, chilled 50 ml/2 fl oz (3 1/2 tablespoons) gin, chilled 1 lemon pinch of finely ground cardamom, to serve
Carefully pour all the liquids into a large chilled jug (pitcher). Grate the lemon zest on top and stir very gently.
To serve, pour into chilled serving glasses and add a pinch of cardamom to the foam. It's in no way traditional, but I also like to keep the lemon to hand so that anyone who wants to can add a squeeze of the juice to their own glass. I think this is delicious.
