Thirst Quenchers

A herby take on the classic gimlet – requires minimal ingredients and change things up from the usual G&Ts. Gin is shaken with lemon juice and a simple syrup (which you can def infuse with sage if you like) and a few fresh sage leaves. It’s a delicious, easy to drink cocktail – which means, it is definitely easy to have one too many!
