How to Make the Gospel, a Tequila Cocktail That Just Might Save Your Life 

In Depth

Welcome to Boozinette. This is the Gospel.

  • 2 oz tequila
  • 3/4 oz lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz sage syrup
  • 1/2 oz triple sec
  • 1 cup sage
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

In a small saucepan bring all ingredients to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer for 5 minutes. Strain, contain, let cool and refrigerate. Use in place of real insight when the yokels get too preachy.

Pour all liquid ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake like a sheep without a shepherd for 10-12 seconds. Fine strain into a martini glass neat. Garnish with a sage leaf and don’t believe the folk in white coats until the man in the white hat hears from the guy with the white beard. Could take a minute, maybe millennia.
