Combine honey, water and sage leaves in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil stirring until honey is incorporated into water.
Boil for 1-2 minutes, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
Combine bourbon, 2 ounces of syrup and juice from orange wedges in a cocktail shaker with a few cubes of ice. Shake.
Pour immediately over about 3 large ice cubes in a 8-11 ounces size glass. Garnish with orange curl and sage leave, if desired.
This cocktail recipe can easily be made into a full pitcher by multiplying the ingredients by the number of drinks you want to make. Instead of shaking with ice refrigerate the pitcher until well chilled.
