Hello & Happy Friday!!

 

 

 

While I love my glass of red, sometimes I like to break away from the norm to explore custom cocktails that pack tons of flavor and visual appeal.. 

 

such as the Grapefruit + Sage Cocktail!

 

Although I’m not fond of grapefruit, I love it with all the components in this drink. So if the sound of grapefruit deters you, don’t let it lol as the flavor profile is more mild than a fresh grapefruit and the sage really complements the drink. 

 

I know the sounds of this cocktail evokes more of a spring/summer feel, but sage is ubiquitously known for being present in many fall inspired dishes, so the fact that I’m not sharing it until now, it still works! lol

What I love about this cocktail is how crisp the flavor is. The grapefruit makes it tart, the elderflower adds floral undertones, the simple syrup a hint of sage, and they blend seamlessly together. 

 


 

 

 

If you have an affinity for grapefruit or fun light cocktails packed with fresh juice.. 

 

You have to try my Grapefruit + Sage Cocktail!

Ingredients

    SAGE SIMPLE SYRUP INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 bunches of fresh sage leaves
  • COCKTAIL INGREDIENTS
  • fresh grapefruit juice
  • Sage simple syrup
  • Elderflower
  • Ice cubes
  • Gin
  • Fresh sage leaves

Instructions

  1. 1. To make the simple syrup. Combine the sugar and water over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture starts to simmer and the sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in the sage and cook for 30 seconds more. Then remove the saucepan from heat and set it aside to cool. Once the simple syrup has cooled to room temperature, remove and discard the sage. Transfer the simple syrup to a clean re-sealable container and store it in your refrigerator until you are ready to use it.
  2. 2. To make a cocktail, vigorously shake 3/4 cup grapefruit juice, 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) of the sage simple syrup and 1 shot of elderflower in a shaker with ice. Strain into a glass with fresh ice. Garnish with fresh sage leaves, if desired. Serve immediately.
