Thirsty Thursday: Blackberry Sage Gin Smash with Candied Sage Leaves Recipe

Blackberry Sage Gin Smash with Candied Sage Leaves is a deliciously fresh cocktail that really brings out the floral notes in the gin.

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz Hendrick’s gin
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 12 blackberries
  • 10 sage leaves
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar + more for dusting
  • Club soda

Intructions:

  1. Bring 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup sugar to a boil over medium heat. Once the sugar is dissolved, dip 2 sage leaves carefully in the hot simple syrup, shaking off the excess. Roll the leaves in a light coat of sugar and lay flat on a plate to cool and harden in the refrigerator.
  2. In a shaker, muddle together blackberries with 8 sage leaves. Pour in gin, lime juice and simple syrup and fill with ice.
  3. Shake and strain evenly between into two glasses filled with ice.
  4. Top with club soda and garnish with extra blackberries and candied sage leaves.
