Ginger Sage Cocktail Drink Recipe

Looking for a cocktail that is different from all those classics that you've tried? Looking for one that is easy-to-make, tastes great and only requires a handful of ingredients? If so, you're going to appreciate our guest-post recipe that's courtesy of Santa Margherita Prosecco. It will make 8-10 servings.

Ginger Sage Cocktail Drink Recipe

Ginger Sage Cocktail Drink Recipe

1 bottle of Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore DOCG
Simple Syrup
1 cup honey
3 cups water
2 whole pears, peeled, cored and diced
1 large piece of ginger, peeled and diced
20 fresh sage leaves (plus more for garnish)

In a saucepan combine the honey and water over medium heat and bring to a light boil. Turn the heat down to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the honey has dissolved completely. Add the pears, ginger and sage leaves. Simmer, stirring occasionally until the mixture has reduced by 1/3 (about 15-20 minutes). Remove from heat and let the mixture steep for an additional 10 minutes. Strain the syrup into a large canning jar or thick glass bowl. Discard the ginger and sage leaves.

Place a few pieces of the cooked pear into each stemless wine glass followed by 2 tbsp. of the simple syrup. Add Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore DOCG and serve immediately. Enjoy!!!

I never thought to use so many sage leaves in a drink. I like all the other ingredients and would certainly be willing to try this drink.
