This is my favorite way to use the smoked sage simple syrup. This cocktail tastes earthier than traditional mojito but is still light and fresh. Its a favorite of mine in the summer when I am overflowing with fresh sage.
3/4oz Lime Juice
Approximately 8 Fresh Mint Leaves
2 Fresh Sage Leaves
Sage for Garnish
Combine the rum, lime juice, simple syrup, mint, and sage leaves in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for around 20 seconds, then pour into your preferred glass filled with ice. Top off with around 4 ounces of club soda and garnish with a sage leave.
