Who knew that cinnamon and sage could be best friends? The earthy herb and the sweet spice get close and cuddly in this cleverly named cocktail by Jen Queen of Saltbox Dining & Drinking in San Diego. The rich oil in the sage is released into a cold bath of fresh pineapple juice, herbaceous gin and fiery cinnamon syrup for a complex hot-weather refresher that is sure to satisfy.
Cinners & Sage
Place the sage leaves in a cocktail shaker, then fill with ice. Add the gin, pineapple juice, cinnamon simple syrup and lime juice. Shake vigorously to release the oils from the sage and combine the ingredients. Strain into a Collins glass filled with ice. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and sage leaf.
