Fuzzy Smash

February 3, 2017

Mixed by Carol Liao


After the success of our last gin smash, we decided to try a different variation. The star of this drink is the fancy candied garnish, but the drink is definitely good enough to hold its own.


  • 2 parts gin
  • 0.5 parts lemon juice
  • 0.5 parts agave syrup
  • a few blackberries
  • fresh sage
  • sugar
  • a splash of club soda


Muddle the sage and blackberries in gin. Pour into a shaker with icee, lemon juice, and agave syrup. Shake well and pour into a glass with ice and top with club soda. To candy the sage, soak in simple syrup then toss in sugar. Put the candied sage and halved blackberries on a toothpick to serve on top of the cocktail.
