I’m not a huge fan of gin, but I’ve found that herbs and citrus make for delicious gin cocktails that I’ll happily sip and smugly feel all grown-up.
This cocktail is one of my favorites, and while similar to the classic gin fizz, this one differs with the addition of sage which blends beautifully with the juniper flavors of the gin.
Give it a whirl if you need a reason to enjoy gin!
