Sage French Gimlet

With just three ingredients this might be one of the easiest fancy-pants drink you can make. When I think about bougie bridal showers, or ladies-who-lunch lunches, I think of the French Gimlet. Pinky up is a must with this drink. However the minute you add Art in the Age's Sage, it suddenly becomes acceptable for all occasions and adds a touch of masculinity. Put down your pinky, pick up a bottle Art in the Age's Sage and make yourself this Sage French Gimlet stat because it's good. Damn good. Put your pinky down good. Did I mention this Sage French Gimlet has only three ingredients and is all kinds of refreshing? Combine Sage (Gin), St. Germaine, and freshly squeezed lime juice and you've got class in a glass. Done. I'll take two.

P.S. Happy Pau Hana Friday. I'm currently in NY, eating my weight in doughnuts, macarons, pizza, guzzling bottle of wine, and such but I thought it necessary to share this cocktail with all of you before things get too crazy over here!!

P.S.S. Art in the Age is a super rad company taking a different, more historic approach to making spirits and drawing inspiration from the pre- (pre-, pre-) prohibition era. Sage, is a good example as it's an homage to the "garden spirits" of Thomas Jefferson's time. Moses and I found Art in the Age during a recent visit to one of our favorite new liquor stores, Silverlake Liquor Shop, and I have to admit, I'm kind of obsessed.
