Fig Manhattan

Step 1: Make a home-infused Fig Bourbon

Our recipe for Fig-Infused Bourbon:  750 ml bottle of Bourbon (we used Jim Beam), 12 oz dried Black Mission Figs. Place the figs in a large canning jar, pour bourbon over the figs and let them marinate for approximately 1 month (or until it reaches your desired taste). Strain and enjoy!

Step 2: Drink the fig bourbon as a straight liqueur at room temperature (sweet enough for a dessert beverage) or use it in cocktails. Our first cocktail attempt is a keeper – the Fig Manhattan. Essentially, we replaced Sweet Vermouth with Fig Bourbon.

Recipe:

2 oz Whiskey/Bourbon

1 oz Fig-Infused Bourbon

1/2 oz Dry Vermouth

Dash of Angostura Bitters

* Brandied cherry (add at the end)

Combine all liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and add a brandied cherry.
