Could this be Sage?

Key West, FL(Zone 11)

Someone gave me a snip of this plant and said it was sage. Can you confirm that? If so, what type of sage is it before I ingest (in a cocktail). :-)

Aegis, it does not look like sage to me, but I know there are salvias with similar type of leaf. I expect longer, narrower leaves with a sort of fuzzy soft look and a really nice smell. When it comes to herbs, I use my nose a lot. I use sage with savories.

Try to post a larger photo; you may get more assistance.

It could be salvia sclarea, clary sage. If it is, then it's better in beer than in cocktails. ;-)

This looks like perilla frutsceh, an Asian herb.
