Sage and Lemon Infused Gin

Our community garden has an overabundance of sage at the moment.  A lot of the things we often cook with sage are more autumnal fare – butternut squash, potato and seitan stew,etc.  Being, as we are, in the middle of a heatwave, we decided to infuse some (cheap) gin with sage leaves and and lemon peel.  We’ll let it sit for a few days, and by the end of the weekend, we should be able to have some herbaceous martinis or something.

Maybe you have some summery sage food recipes, so that we can get a little something in our stomachs along with our cocktails.

    We were just wondering what to do with our sage last night and realized sage=fall (usually).

    Yes, liquor infusions! The sage and lemon combination sounds great with gin. It’s practically an instant gin & tonic! 🙂

    Just stumbled across your blog and I love it (and gin)! I’m also a vegetarian living in BK, I spend about the same amount you both do on groceries but I’d love to shake up my recipes a bit. Definitely will be following!
