Sage Simple Syrup
Author note: This recipe was inspired by a beautifully presented sage simple syrup I saw on Instagram. I am unaware of the creator; however, I give them credit for this idea. This recipe is my translation of the concept of sage simple syrup. Serve in Champagne, prosecco, cocktails and teas – actually, the possibilities are not limited to drinks and they are quite endless.
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup sugar
30-40 sage leaves and stems, tied (about 5 branches of sage)
- In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients and cook over medium-low heat. Stir occasionally. Let the syrup simmer for about 15 minutes.
- Remove from heat, bring to room temperature and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
