Happy President’s Day! I’m working today but it’s no big deal. I made the most of my one day off yesterday by drinking and eating and squeezing in a little exercise and a lot of movies. Let me tell you about the drinking. There was this martini. x4… I think? I lost count of the top offs.
So this martini, the Sage Drop, is one that the husband has been telling me about since we initiated Martini Monday. It’s apparently one that he drank copious amounts of when he lived with his friend, Eric. And I can see why. It goes down way too easy. It’s sweet, but not overly so. It’s aromatic, thanks to the sage. Dare I say I prefer these to Lemon Drops?
makes 2-3 large martinis
3 Tbls limeade concentrate (the frozen variety)
3 Tbls lemonade concentrate (again, the frozen variety)
4 oz club soda
~20 leaves sage
In a martini shaker, combine all ingredients. Using a muddler, break up the sage to make it fragrant and release the oils. Strain into martini glasses and enjoy the crap out of them.
