I spent years in awe of my little brother's liquor-infusing abilities before I realized how easy it was. This sage-infused whiskey is one of the most delicious things I've drunk, and all it is is fresh sage and whiskey. Step one: put sage in bottle (see above). Step two: add whiskey (see below). Step three: wait at least a day, and then use it.
Here's what I've been doing with it. I don't like sweet drinks, but this is just enough sugar to make it really smooth. Any good names for this cocktail?
2 ice cubes
one lemon wedge, squeezed
up to 0.5 oz simple syrup (I used equal parts water and turbinado sugar to make this)
1-1.5 oz sage-infused whiskey
soda water to fill
