Back of Happy Hour: Sage Lady In terms of flavored vodkas, I've always enjoyed Absolut's more creative offerings. So naturally I was excited when I got my hands on a bottle of Absolut's newest flavor — Absolut Mango. The brand crafted several recipes to feature the spirit and I decided to experiment with this innovative cocktail that combines sage, cucumber, and lime juice. While I've had a cocktail with basil and another with cilantro, I've never had any that uses sage. It adds a woodsy, earthiness to the drink — which is delectable and refreshing. The ingredients meld perfectly to make a cocktail that is slightly sweet, tart, and delightfully fruity. For the recipe, . Sage Lady From Absolut Ingredients3 fresh sage leaves 3 slices of cucumber 1 ounce simple syrup 1 1/2 ounces Absolut Mango Vodka 1/2 ounce Cointreau 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice dash of peach bitters* Directions In a cocktail shaker, muddle cucumber, simple syrup, and sage.
