Sage Greyhound

Friday, September 21, 2018

This in-between season as summer transitions to fall is probably my favorite time of year. It's still warm enough to have dinner on the patio, but cool enough that you might want a sweater. This herbaceous greyhound is the cocktail equivalent of shorts and a fisherman's sweater—just perfect.

Sage Greyhound

2 oz vodka
4 oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1 oz sage syrup

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for 10–15 seconds, then strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a grapefruit wedge and sage leaf.

Notes: To make the sage syrup, combine 1 cup water and 1 cup granulated sugar with 10–20 sage leaves, roughly chopped in a saucepan. Heat under sugar is dissolved, then let cool. Strain syrup and use immediately or store in the fridge with a dash of vodka to lengthen its shelf life.
