Sage infused Gin fizz

Okay I will admit it with holiday drinks I like a bit of fizz.  I love a Slo Gin Fizz and this is my herb-infused version of that beverage. For this one it tastes seasonally perfect and can cure your ills if you use honey to make the simple syrup rather than sugar.  Sage is a natural germ fighter, so you get the added benefit of sore throat treatment and alcoholic beverage.

Sage-infused Gin fizz (serves 4)

For honey sage syrup:
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup water
6 sage leaves

For fizz:
3 ounces gin
2 tablespoons honey sage syrup
2 tablespoons lime juice
3/4 cup club soda
Sage leaves, for garnish  (as a treat candy the sage leaves by coating in sugar)

Make honey sage syrup, combine honey, water, and sage leaves in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to low and stir constantly until honey is completely dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from heat completely and let cool for 30 minutes.

Divide gin, honey sage syrup, lime juice, and club soda among 4 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with sage leaves.
