You’ve probably noticed that we’re big fans of brunch — it’s one of our favorite ways to celebrate the weekend. As such, we’re always searching out new brunch cocktail ideas, preferably something simple, sip-able, yet standout. Just in time for Vodka Picking Season we’ve teamed up with our friends at Hangar 1® Vodka to create the ultimate winter brunch cocktail aka this Sparkling Sage Grapefruit Cocktail.
or homemade sage honey syrup (see tip below)
Combine Hangar 1® Straight Vodka, sparkling wine, grapefruit juice, elderflower liqueur, simple or honey syrup in a pitcher and stir to combine. Fill serving glasses with ice and a slice of grapefruit and sprig of sage, if using, then top with cocktail mixture and serve.
For the sage honey syrup, combine 3/4 cup good-quality, fragrant honey (we used orange blossom) with 1 cup of water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove syrup from heat and add 10 fresh sage leaves and let steep for 20 minutes. Strain syrup and cool before using (can be made up to 2 weeks ahead).
