Cocktail Recipe | Blood Orange & Sage

November 21, 2019

 

 

Our featured seasonal cocktail puts the spotlight on blood orange and sage. This recipe puts a new spin on a classic cocktail component – egg whites! 

Adding egg whites gives your mixed drinks a meringue-like texture, cutting the acidity of the alcohol and citrus.

BLOOD ORANGE AND SAGE COCKTAIL INGREDIENTS

2  Sage Leaves

2  Blood Orange Wedges 

2 oz  Two James Old Cockney Gin 

3/4 oz  Lime Juice 

3/4 oz  Simple Syrup 

1  Egg White 

 

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS 

  1.  In a shaker or with mortar and pestle, mix sage and blood orange 
  2. Add the the rest of the ingredients and shake without ice 
  3. Fill with ice and shake well 
  4. Strain into chilled Pewabic Rocks Cups and garnish with sage leaf 

 

NOTES

  • It is important to first "dry shake" all ingredients without ice for 30 seconds or more. 
  • Chill your Pewabic Rocks Cups prior to serving your beverage. 
  • If you can't find any blood oranges, regular oranges or clementines are great substitutes. While they may lack the pinkish hue, they both complement the sage well.

“Aretha Franklin, Rosa Parks, Gilda Radner, Martha Dodge, a list that screams Detroit’s defining women. Often one person is left off that list…Mary Stratton, the mother of Pewabic Pottery.” explains WWJ 950’s Zach Clark in a segment for International Women's Day this year. Zach Clark took a look at the century-long legacy of one of Michigan's finest artists with Pewabic’s Education Director and Archivist Annie Dennis and the Detroit Historical Society’s Manager of Education and Public Programs Kimmie Dobos Wolfe. You can listen to the full story here.
