Twist up your summer refresher with this Cherry Sage Gimlet featuring muddled fresh cherries and sage tincture to produce a lovely, sweet, aromatic gimlet that's fresh and enticing at the same time. The sage notes are subtle and understated and are almost mysterious underneath the lime, juniper and cherry ingredients.
Fill a ½ cup mason jar with fresh sage leaves and pour high proof alcohol over it (like Everclear). Let sit, shaking each day for 2-4 days, or until dark green and pungently sage in aroma and taste. Strain into a clean dropper bottle. Will keep indefinitely (it’s like bitters in that way).
