Grapefruit and Sage Sparkler

Herbal cocktails are my jammmm! Ever since I chanced upon a thyme gimlet at a restaurant in Brooklyn (because let’s face it, that’s where ALL the herbal cocktails are) I have been so fascinated by the idea of adding savory herbs to cocktails.

Though I make them all the time, this is my first official herbal cocktail recipe so I brought my A-game. The sage and grapefruit balance each other out so amazingly, and then some pink moscato comes by to make it a match made in heaven. You’ve GOT to try this!


What you need:

  • 3-4 sage leaves
  • 1tsp Honey
  • 1/2 cup Fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 cup pink moscato
  • Grapefruit slice and sage leaf for garnishing
[Makes 1 drink]
  1. Add the sage leaves and honey to a cocktail shaker and muddle.
  2. Add ice and the grapefruit juice to the shaker and shake it like a polaroid picture.
  3. Pour over ice and top with moscato.
  4. Garnish with grapefruit slice and sage leaf (optional)


You can easily double the recipe to make 2 drinks or even a large batch for a party!

What’s your favorite herb to use for cocktails?
