Let’s make the most of fig season with this sage-fig cocktail. Featuring a sage simple syrup, fresh figs and rum, this cocktail is tasty and oh-so pretty.



For Sage-Infused Simple Syrup
34 sage sprigs
1 cup sugar
1 cup water

For Sage-Fig Cocktail
2 black mission figs, halved
2 ounces white rum
1 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce sage-infused simple syrup
1/2 lemon, juiced
Club soda, to top


  1. In a small saucepan, combine sage, water and sugar. Over medium-high heat, bring to a high simmer. Frequently stir to help dissolve sugar. Once the mixture simmers and the sugar dissolves, turn off heat, allow the sage to steep for at least 30 minutes and strain.
  2. Muddle the figs in a cocktail shaker until they mostly break down. Add rum, Grand Marnier, sage-infused simple syrup, lemon juice and ice. Put on the top of the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Strain into ice-filled glasses and top with club soda. Enjoy!


  • Figs have a lot of seeds, so if you want a seedless cocktail, strain the cocktail over a cheese cloth-lined fine-mesh sieve.
