Muddled some fresh sage, put it in a 2/3 bottle of gin, put the gin bottle in a small hot water pan on mid-low, about 120-140 degrees. 

Infused like it would be in a month, in about 4 hours. Mixing with grapefruit juice, and some homemade caramel swizzle sticks.

I would like to sing the praises of my favorite drink base: Passoa.  I first encountered this in San Juan, PR about 8 years's smooth, fruity and goes well with citrus.  I don't know if it's available in the States, but if you happen to visit the Caribbean, bring some back with won't regret it

can someone suggest some good ciders?  I'm not a fan of beer and would liek to have a bottle to old at some outings that I actually enjoy.  I've had woodchucl and I like pear cider.

The Smokestack

Got this idea from a bar I visited last weekend, and decided to experiment at home. 

Step 1: Take your favorite Whiskey or Bourbon
Step 2: Select a good smoking hardwood, like applewood, cherry, pecan, hickory, etc. 
Step 3: Get an old-fashioned type set up: orange peel, bitters, and some ice 
Step 4: As safely as possible, char the wood until it lights, then immediately flip an empty shaker over the cup
Step 5: Let the smoke fill the shaker, then pour the whiskey in the shaker, cover and shake gently
Step 6: Let sit for 1 minute, then pour over ice
Step 7: Enjoy!

I used apple wood and Jack Daniels, then Makers Mark. The wood was mild, so it took nicely to the flavor of the booze. In hindsight I would have mixed a bit of honey to mute any acridness of the smoke. Also, it got better as the ice melted. Next time I try it, I will caramelize some sugar to add a garnish, and use cherry wood for smoking.
