Pom and Sage Gin Cocktail

During the holidays I love to spice things up with a specialty cocktail.  Since I had an abundance of sage in my garden and it is a warm herb that most of us use during this time of year I thought it would be a perfect compliment to a pomegranate drink.

Recipe to make one cocktail

2 oz gin
1 oz lemon juice
1 oz pomegranate juice
1 oz sage simple syrup*
Pomegranate seeds to garnish.

Additional lemon juice and sugar for the sugared rim

If desired, dip the chilled cocktail glass in lemon juice and then in sugar for a sugared rim.

Pour all ingredients except for pomegranate seeds into a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake the cocktail shaker for a couple minutes and pour into a martini or glass, no ice needed.

*The simple syrup is 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup water and a handful of sage leaves. Boil until sugar is dissolved. Remove sage leaves and cool liquid before using.

Happy Bartending!

❤ Always,

TT
