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 recipes ideas and when it comes to cocktails that's 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 inspired by all the citrus here in our homestate of California. So this Sparkling Sage Grapefruit Cocktail is a recipe that's gorgeous enough to be worthy of Instagram but still simple enough to make pitchers of so you can enjoy brunch instead of hanging in the kitchen!
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).
