When the sugar has dissolved, remove from the heat and add the sage. Let steep for 30 minutes. Strain the syrup through a fine mesh strainer set over a storage container. Discard the sage leaves and store the syrup in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Strain the drink into a cocktail glass filled with three ice cubes. Top with processo and stir gently to combine. Garnish with sage leaves and edible flowers, and serve cold.
