fig cocktail, no. 1

November 12th, 2010

It’s Friday! Woohoo! The other day I was in the store and store and spotted some fresh figs, something I find hard to pass by. There’s something about those deep purple little blobs that are just so cute and irresistible. Since it was Thursday I immediately started thinking of what kind of cocktail I could make with them. I came up with a few ideas, but my cupboards really dictated which I made (note to self, pick up some black pepper). I hope you enjoy this little herbaly treat.

Cheers! To a lovely weekend, filled with fun and getting things done.

fig cocktail, no. 1

2 figs, halved
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1 oz rosemary simple syrup
2 oz vodka

Muddle the figs, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker.
Add the vodka and a few ice cubes. Shake for 10 seconds.
Strain into a glass. This may be a little tricky since you don’t want the skin and bigger chunks of the fig to fall into the glass. It took my a few goes at it to get all the liquid without much of the chunky bits.

    yum, sounds so yummy! I recently had fig and apple crumble and wondered why I don’t bake with figs more often because it was so delicious.
