If you happened to see my 10 Fall Inspired Cocktails article then you know I’ve had cocktails on my mind. You may or may not know but I am a whiskey drinker. I’ve concocted a wonderful whiskey drink with notes of sage, rosemary and thyme. I’ve infused these holiday/fall inspired herbs into a simple syrup that take a basic whiskey ginger into a delightful whiskey ginger.
Sage, Rosemary and Thyme Whiskey Ginger
2-4 sage leaves
4-6 sprigs of thyme
3-5 sprigs of rosemary
2 cups of water
½ cup sugar
1-2 shots of whiskey
Boil 2 water and stir in sugar. Add sage, rosemary and thyme. Turn heat down to medium, cook for 40 minutes. Pour herb simple syrup into a container and let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate. Best to refrigerate overnight. To prepare drinks add ice or a whiskey ice ball if you want to be fancy. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the herb simple syrup, 1-2 shots of whiskey and fill glass with ginger ale.
