I created this cocktail for a PopUp dinner I recently had...and it was SO delicious I thought I'd share it with you! It's fresh, simple and perfect for entertaining. I love to mix up a batch of cocktails before my guests arrive so I'm not mixing drinks during the gathering. So let me show you how to mix this delicious blackberry, sage and bourbon cocktail!
First, you make the simple syrup. Just add 1/2 cup of sugar into 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan and bring to a simmer; add a few fresh sage leaves and then remove from the heat. Let steep for about 15 minutes then strain and cool. This can be stored in the fridge for about 2 weeks. Perfect for make-ahead entertaining!
When you are ready for your cocktail, muddle a few blackberries in the bottom of a glass. Add 1 ounce of the sage simple syrup, 2 ounces of bourbon, crushed ice and stir baby stir! OMG...it's so so good. Garnish with a few extra blackberries and enjoy!
I CAN NOT believe we got a pic with any still left in my glass! hee-hee! Hey if it sounds good....share with your favorite cocktailing friends!! xx, L
