Honey, lavender and sage gin fizz

I’ve been wanting to make this cocktail for a long time.  I have so much fresh sage in my garden and a bunch of dried lavender blossoms and the two just seem to go together so nice.  I usually find sage can be overpowering, but next to the lavender its flavour and aromatics are much softer.

Choosing the gin was a no brainer for me – Eau Claire was the winner.  It’s a local gin distilled in Turner Valley and it’s delicious.  It’s got a few floral notes, some citrus and a little spice – it is fantastic in a cocktail (or on its own).

So without further adieu – here’s the recipe for this tasty drink!

YIELD – 4 cocktails


  • 8 oz. gin (I used Eau Claire)
  • 1 oz. honey, lavender & sage syrup (click for recipe)
  • Juice of 2 limes – squeeze half a lime into each cocktail (minus 1 slices)
  • 4-6 oz. soda (sparkling) water
  • ice cubes

To Garnish

  • 4 sage leaves
  • 1 lime slice cut into quarters
  • 1/2 tsp. lavender blossoms



  1. put ice cubes in cocktail glasses and build cocktail over ice.
  2. pour gin into glass first, followed by the simple syrup, and then the fresh squeezed lime juice.
  3. give the cocktail a good stir and add in lime slice and lavender blossoms
  4. top with soda and garnish with sage leaf









Invite some friends over and get your drink on!

Till the next recipe.

    They really compliment one another, I’ve found. The sage becomes a bit more subdued and earthy and the lavender a little less soapy and a little more floral. It goes great with a nice bold gin!
