Sunshine Cocktail or Mocktail

For those of us who are knee-deep in snow right now (half of the country) – you need a pitcher filled with sunshine!! And this cocktail, or mocktail (no alcohol) will hit the sunny spot. Loaded with strong antioxidant vitamin C, it’s the perfect immunity booster when the dreaded flu hits your house.

INGREDIENTS
3 lemons, cut into quarters
12 fresh sage leaves, torn in half
3 tsp coconut sugar
1.5 C gin (if necessary) do I have to say? – for adults ONLY
1.5 C freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
Ice
GARNISH
Sage leaves and grapefruit wheels

DIRECTIONS
Muddle the lemons, one-half of the sage leaves, and the coconut sugar in a pitcher. Add the grapefruit juice, and ice and stir until well combined. If this is for the adults only – add your gin.

Strain the contents of the pitcher into 6 ice-filled rocks glasses. Garnish each with the remaining sage leaves and grapfruit wheels and serve.

Sunshine in a glass!!
