Charred Sage Paloma

Makes 8 Drinks

A Paloma is a traditional drink with tequila and grapefruit soda. Here we make it a little more savory with fresh grapefruit juice and sage from our garden. It’s aromatic and refreshing, with a clean aftertaste to get your palate ready for a summer meal. You’ll want to make the simple syrup in advance, but it will keep well in the fridge for long enough to enjoy these on a few evenings throughout a week.


  • Sage Stalks – 2 Each
  • Granulated Sugar- 1 Cup
  • Lime Juice – 1 Cup
  • Grapefruit Juice – 1 Pint
  • Grapefruit Wedges – 8 Each
  • Silver Tequila – 12 Ounces (half of a 750ml bottle)
  • Soda water – 1 Liter

Sage Simple Syrup:

In medium sized sauce pan, combine 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. While waiting for the water to boil, use a crème brulee torch to char one sage stalk thoroughly. Once the water boils, stir to dissolve the sugar, add the sage, and turn the burner off. Transfer to a sealable container once cool enough and store in the fridge until use.

Drink Service:

In tall Collins (iced tea) glasses, fill with ice. Next, pour in each glass the following:
1.5 oz tequila, 1 ounce sage syrup, 2 ounces grapefruit juice, 1Ž2 ounce lime juice.
Fill the remainder of the glass with soda


Garnish the drink with a sage leaf and a wedge of fresh grapefruit. For an added touch, char the grapefruit wedge by dipping one side in sugar and then burning it gently with the crème brulee torch
