Sage Ya Later

With Manzanilla


Stirred and spirit forward, Sage Ya Later showcases both the Manzanilla En Rama and the East India Solera for their uniquely different characteristics, as well as how wonderfully sherry pairs with mezcal. Offering bright citrus with smoke on the nose and rich in mouthfeel, this juicy cocktail has a long sherry body and finishes with delicate smoke and a lingering salinity that forces you to reach for another sip.

-Prep footed rocks glass by torching a small pile of dried sage and placing the glass upside over the burning herbs.

-Add sugar and dried sage, remove from heat once incorporated.
-Strain through cheese cloth.
