Golden Plum and Sage Cocktail
A crisp, summer cocktail that pairs fresh plums and sage with pisco and sparkling wine
  1. Start by adding three sage leaves to the bottom of your shaker. Top with honey syrup and lightly muddle the sage, thereby releasing its oil into the mixture.
  2. Next, cut the half plum into two quarters and add them to your shaker with sage-honey syrup.
  3. Crush the fruit, extracting as much plum juice as possible. Now you’re free to add the remaining ingredients, except for the sparkling wine.
  4. Before you shake your cocktail, add the sparkling wine to your glass. Use a dry sparkling wine to balance the sweetness of the fruit and honey. I used a Cava Brut. The contents of your shaker will be more dense than the sparkling wine, allowing it to mix on its on when you pour overtop.
  5. Now that your glass is prepped, fill your shaker with ice and shake for an icy-cold 10 seconds.
  6. Double strain (to remove those bits of fruit and herbs) into a coupe glass overtop the sparkling wine. Garnish with a few small pieces of sage and enjoy!!
