Pineapple Sage Bourbon Lemonade Recipe |

Pineapple sage was a new addition to the herb garden this year. What an amazing plant. First of all, the leaves taste like pineapple. And it smells like it, too. Mine hasn’t flowered yet, but it will also bloom with beautiful reddish pink flowers that attract humming birds. 

It’s taken off well in the garden. Some of the older leaves are burning in the sun, but I was pleased to find some new, pretty growth in the inner part of the plant. It seems to be sticking around. 


Pineapple sage for a bourbon lemonade cocktail recipe.

It’s the kind of herb that is meant for a cocktail and it worked perfectly with this easy bourbon drink I put together. The pineapple sage adds a twist of flavor that lets you know this isn’t a simple bourbon lemonade. 

Homemade lemonade would work great in this, but you probably remember that leftover lemonade I had a few days ago. I used it in this drink, too. 

Just a little muddling the herbs and a shake, and you have the ideal summer drink for sipping on the front porch. Or the back patio with the succulents and couple pugs, like we do.
