- 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
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.
