My favorite drinking occasion is when I'm sipping on a hot beverage in the peak of the cold season. This Ginger Sage Cocktail from Santa Margherita has been keeping me warm all winter long. The combination of the ginger, sage, and honey is to DIE for. —tastytots17

Pears (peeled, cored, diced)
Large piece of ginger (peeled, diced)
Fresh Sage Leaves
In This Recipe
In a saucepan combine the honey and water over medium heat and bring to a light boil. Turn the heat down to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the honey has dissolved completely. Add the pears, ginger and sage leaves.
Simmer, stirring occasionally until the mixture has reduced by 1/3 (about 15-20 minutes). Remove from heat and let the mixture steep for an additional 10 minutes.
Strain the syrup into a large canning jar or thick glass bowl. Discard the ginger and sage leaves.
Place a few pieces of the cooked pear into each stemless wine glass followed by 2 tbsps of the simple syrup. Add Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore and serve.
