Sage honey adds an earthy whisper to balance the nip of Bluecoat gin in this perfectly chilled saffron-colored cocktail. Tart touches of lemon and grapefruit juices give this drink a bit of summery citrus to fend off the winter cold. The martini pairs exquisitely with baked cedar-plank salmon and holds its own with New York strip steak. $9.50.
