- I used 10 oz. glasses to build the drinks in. I bought them at Goodwill just for the occasion. I didn’t have any glasses that seemed right for this drink, and I was able to buy five previously owned glasses for $1.50.
- If you don’t have Sage, a good gin will work, too, although the flavor will be milder. I tried making one with Bluecoat American Gin (also out of Philadelphia) instead of the Sage just to see how it worked, and it was still a good drink.
- The drinks take a little while to build. If you know how many you’ll need, it might make sense to start building them before your guests arrive. I think that putting the fresh squeezed lemon and the roasted cherries in each glass within a half hour before the guests arrive would be fine. Then the rest of the ingredients could be added, saving some time and allowing your guests to start enjoying their libation a little sooner.
