With or Without

Posted on Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

It’s always a nice touch to offer your guests a lively beverage they can enjoy with or without some alcohol in it. For this holiday lunch I recently hosted, I made this pitcher of club soda flavored with some homemade strawberry and lemon syrups. You can find the syrup recipes here and here. Long sprigs of pineapple sage were added for more flavor and a big punch of pretty. This sage is way more tender than the common garden sage. Mine survived last winter’s weather, and I’m hoping that now it is more established, it will be around for cocktails in 2013. As soon as we get a hard freeze, it will turn to mush. The leaves and blossoms truly taste of pineapple.

For those guests that want a more spirited drink, you can have a bottle of white wine chilling close by. Guests can choose to have a little or a lot of wine with their fruity herbal soda. It’s a tasty party beverage either way.
