Sage & Pear Margarita

Posted by on

Just because the holidays have arrived does not mean summer refreshers are out of the question. In fact, the margarita is fully favorable (and "flavorable") all year round. This version of a spicy marg is bursting with flavors that will make you say "WOW!" and knock the socks off your family and friends. Kashmiri Honey gives this drink a mild kick without packing too much heat, and the sage adds a touch of velvety eucalyptus to the peppery, vanilla-scented reposado tequila. Your heart will sing and your mouth will thank you.
