Recipe Type: Cocktail
Makes: 2 cocktails
Author: Brooklyn Supper
For the Honey Sage Syrup
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 ounce fresh sage leaves, stems removed
For the Sage Gold Rush Cocktails
  • 4 ounces bourbon
  • 3 ounces honey sage simple syrup
  • 3 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 2 lemons)
  1. To make the syrup, combine honey, water, and sage leaves in a medium saucepan over medium heat. As soon as mixture starts to steam, turn heat off. Steep sage leaves for 10 minutes. Strain into a jar or bottle with a lid, pressing leaves firmly to release liquid. Makes about 1 cup. Leftover syrup will keep well sealed in the fridge for about 1 month.
  2. To make the cocktails, combine bourbon, honey syrup, and lemon juice in an ice-filled shaker. Shake for 1 minute. Strain into ice-filled Old Fashioned glasses; garnish each with a twist of lemon and a few sprigs sage.
