This is the summer drink you didn't know you needed.
Most people have only had nasty chain-restaurant daiquiris. This is not that! A simple combination of rum, lime, and sweetener (in this case, maple syrup) makes for a light and delicious drink. The added woodsy notes of sage and warm heat of Trees Knees round this out into one complex cocktail.
2 oz light rum
1 oz lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 oz Trees Knees Spicy Syrup
4 torn sage leaves, plus one for garnish
1/2 cup ice
Add all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
Add more ice to a rocks glass and strain cocktail. Add a sage leaf to garnish.
