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 ago...it'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 you...you 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.
