Rum Cocktail

San Francisco bartender Cynthia Tran created this cocktail as a vehicle for the pineapple sage growing in her garden. “The aromatics of Aperol and pineapple sage were begging for a light and refreshing rum cocktail,” she says.

1 oz. white rum
1 oz. pineapple sage-infused Aperol
1 oz. yellow Chartreuse
1 oz. fresh lime juice
Tools: shaker
Glass: footed chalice
Garnish: pineapple sage sprig

Shake all of the ingredients together with crushed ice. Pour the contents of the shaker into a glass, then garnish.

Pineapple Sage-Infused Aperol Gently muddle 2 cups of loosely packed fresh pineapple sage and combine with 1 liter of Aperol. Let the mixture infuse for 2 to 3 hours, then strain.
