friday at five :: mid-winter margarita

mid winter cocktail
Combine tequila, Cointreau, lime and — hey, mid-winter — grapefruit juice, and shake like the dickens. Don’t skip the chile salt, and most importantly — don’t scale this drink down. Olé.

Serves 4

4 1/2 ounces Don Julio Blanco tequila
2 1/4 ounces triple sec
2 1/4 ounces fresh lime juice
2 1/4 ounces fresh grapefruit juice
2 fresh lime wheels for garnish
Chile salt (1:1 sea salt and ground chile peppers)

kirsch au café :: friday at five


At SAGE + LØVE studio, we have been all about lattes this week. So, why not finish off the week with a spiked morning cup {ahem, cocktail glass) of joe. In this little masterpiece, cherry brandy and espresso come together beautifully.


  • 1 oz cognac
  • .75 oz kirsch
  • .75 oz cherry heering
  • .5 oz simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water)
  • .5 to 1 oz egg white
  • 1 shot (about 1 oz) freshly brewed espresso


Add all the ingredients except the espresso to a shaker and shake (without ice) until frothy. Fill with ice and add the espresso. Shake well and strain into two small cocktail glasses.
