The Sage Martini
One of my new favorites is Rhuby, which I've written about before. (Now apparently being sold under a new label, as Rhubarb.) I've turned my new job onto the glories of Rhuby already.
That company has come out with a new product, called Sage. It's a very sage-heavy botanical gin, light and herbal and kind of like Hendricks without the cucumber notes.
It makes an excellent martini (3 parts Sage, dash of dry vermouth, shake and strain). It also makes for an interesting gimlet (3 parts Sage, 1 1/2 parts each lime juice and simple syrup, shake and strain).
