Huckleberry Sage Shrub Cocktail

Makes 1 Cocktail (plus extra syrup)

This cocktail recipe blends two flavors of the forest, sage and huckleberry, with the spice of ginger.

INGREDIENTS
  • Raw Sugar Base Syrup:
  • 1 cup Raw (Demerara) Sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • Ginger Syrup:
  • 1 medium finger of Ginger, peeled & sliced
  • ½ cup Raw Sugar Base Syrup
  • Cocktail:
  • 2oz Vodka (we used Tito’s)
  • 1/2oz Huckleberry Shrub
  • 1/2oz Ginger Syrup
  • 4-5 Sage Leaves
  • 1/4oz Lemon Juice
  • Garnish:
  • Sage Leaves, Blueberries or Huckleberries & Skewer

DIRECTIONS

1

Make the base syrup: combine the raw sugar & water in a small saucepan. Heat the water to a simmer, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
2

Take a half cup of the resulting syrup and bring it to a simmer in a separate pot. Add the ginger and simmer 5-10 minutes, until you like the intensity of the flavor.

You can reserve the extra raw sugar syrup for other recipes, or multiply the ginger syrup recipe to use it all up.
3

Combine the vodka, shrub, syrup & sage leaves in a mixing tin.
4

Use a muddler to gently press the sage leaves to bruise them.
5

Strain the cocktail into a rocks glass over ice.
6

Skewer the blueberries & sage leaves in a decorative pattern, then balance the skewer on top of the glass.
