Plum Sage Fizz

Plum Sage Fizz @themerrythoughtThis mocktail is a very basic, herby drink. If you’re looking for something super sweet, (ehem… Manda) you may want to skip out on this one. The sage syrup really makes this one a winner for me. Not too sweet so you can gulp down an entire drink without feeling sick.Plum Sage Fizz @themerrythoughtPlum Sage Fizz

1/2 Ripe Plum (pitted and cut in thin wedges)
Juice of 1/2 Lime
1 Tbsp Sage Simple Syrup
Club Soda

Muddle plum and lime juice. Add sage syrup and fill glass 1/2 full of ice. Top off with club soda, stir and enjoy!

If you want a sweeter drink, you could add some plum juice or substitute some of the club soda with some Sprite. If I had a juicer when I made this, I definitely would have used some fresh plum juice!

Sage Simple Syrup
Add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, and 5-10 sage leaves (depending on size) to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring continually. Once sugar is dissolved, turn off heat and let cool. Strain out sage leaves.
