Sage Advice

This cocktail was given to us by master mixologist and close friend of Rachael’s, Nick Mautone, who wrote the book, Raising The Bar.

Nick tells us that this is a “Simply extraordinary cocktail with wild spicy and peppery notes. Sage is widely available but not as widely used in mixology.”


  • 4 sprigs fresh sage
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 4 slices of cucumber
  • 1 1/2 ounces VeeV Acai Spirit
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • Sage leaf, for garnish


In the bottom of a cocktail shaker place the syrup and sage and muddle well. Add ice and the rest of the ingredients, shake vigorously. Double strain into a cocktail or rocks glass.
