Sage Brown Derby (Whiskey and Grapefruit Cocktail)
A refreshing and boozy winter drink that is perfect for daily enjoyment or a gathering.
- 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) whiskey (I used Maker’s Mark)
- 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) red or pink grapefruit juice
- 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) fresh lime juice
- 1/4 ounce (1/2 tablespoon) agave syrup
- 2 dashes bitters
- 1 fresh sage leaf
Combine everything except sage leaf in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake until the outside is frosty, about 20 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass.
Rub and slap the sage leaf with your palms until it releases its fragrance. Place on top of the cocktail.
