“Sage is all the rage these days, with countless health benefits and a wonderfully distinct flavor that ranges from earthy to lemony fresh,” says Drew Jordan, cocktail enthusiast. “At Summer Winter restaurant in Burlington, MA, the power herb is sourced from the restaurant’s four-season, on-site greenhouse to create their Greenhouse Sage Margarita, where the camphor-like herb is complemented by winter citrus and a touch of blanco tequila.”
Sage will not only improve one’s memory, but it also relieves sore throats, aids in digestion, and calms allergies. To prepare this wellness elixir, mix 2 oz. of Don Julio Blanco tequila, 1 oz. of Cointreau, 2 oz. of fresh squeezed lime juice, 2 oz. of Simple Syrup, and 3 fresh sage leaves.
Combine all ingredients in a tumbler, shake, and pour into traditional margarita glass.
