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.
