Honey Bourbon with Sage

The citrus from the orange and the sweet and earthiness from the honey sage syrup pair perfectly with Wild Turkey Bourbon. Serve these next to the bottle and an olive wood honey dipper and you’re sure to impress any crowd. 


  • 1 cup water

  • 1/2 cup honey

  • 10-12 fresh sage leaves

  • 2 oz. bourbon

  • 1 orange peel

  • 1 fresh sage leaves

  • 3 tbsp. honey sage syrup


  1. Bring the water, honey, and sage to a boil in a pot over medium high heat.

  2. Reduce to low and simmer 3 minutes. Turn off heat and let syrup cool.

  3. Pour bourbon and cooled syrup over ice.

  4. Twist your orange peel directly over glass until you see the oils release. Place in glass with bourbon and garnish with a fresh sage leaf.

  5. Add more honey, to taste.
