Sage Smash Gin and Tonic: Guest Post by Isabelle of Crumb #BoozeWeek
The Sage Smash adds muddles grapes and fresh sage leaves to the classic gin and tonic for a refreshing fall cocktail.
- 6 red seedless grapes
- 4 leaves fresh sage
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 oz dry gin
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- Tonic water to finish
In a cocktail shaker, muddle together the grapes with sage and sugar to release their juices. Add the gin and lemon juice, and shake vigorously with ice for about 30 seconds.
Strain into a highball glass, and top off with tonic water. Garnish with sage leaves and halved grapes, if desired.
