If you're not familiar with Art In The Age, you should be. Based our of Philly, they make some of the most flavorful, complex spirits with organic ingredients. We had their RHUBARB and ROOT at our February Bitter Lovers event and they were a hit.
They use an incredible mix of botanicals and ingredients to flavor each of their spirits. Defying all classifications, they aren't vodka, they aren't gin...they're just good.
For this cocktail, we used their SAGE. Slightly sweet and instilled with organic American botanicals including thyme, rosemary, lavender, fennel and, of course sage, it's delightfully mixable in both sweet and savory cocktails. And at 80 proof, it's not just some mild, flavored liqueur.
fine mesh strainer
2.5 oz Art In The Age SAGE
.5 oz simple syrup
.5 oz fresh lime juice
Start by placing 6-8 large mint leaves in the bottom of your cocktail strainer and muddle to release aromatics. Add SAGE, simple and lime and fill with ice. Shake like hell for about 15-20 seconds and double-strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a single mint leaf on top.
