The Summer Sage, A Cocktail

The Summer Sage, A Cocktail

Ingredients

  • 6 slices red plum, as ripe and juicy as possible
  • 4 to 5 sage leaves, stems removed
  • 1/4 to 1/2 ounce simple syrup (more for a sweeter drink, less for a more pronounced whiskey taste.)
  • Splash (about 1/8 ounce) fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 ounces rye whiskey

Recipe

Add the plums, sage, and simple syrup to the bottom of a shaker, and muddle (or smoosh vigorously with the back of a spoon) until the plums form a nice mush.

Fill the shaker with ice and add the lemon juice and whiskey. Shake and then double strain into a cocktail glass.
