Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • For the Tea Syrup
  • 1 cup brewed black tea
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • For the Cocktail
  • 3 fresh sage leaves
  • 2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
  • 3/4 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces rye
  • 1/2 ounce Averna bitters
Directions

Make the syrup: Combine the tea and honey in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Reduce until syrupy, about 10 minutes, then let cool.

Make the cocktail: Combine 1/2 ounce tea syrup, 2 sage leaves, the Peychaud's bitters and orange juice in a cocktail shaker. Gently muddle the sage with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon. Add the rye and Averna and fill the shaker three-quarters of the way with ice. Give it a short shake, then strain into a martini glass and garnish with the remaining sage leaf.
