Figs are in season, so what better way to enjoy this time of year than sipping on a fresh fig cocktail? Featuring muddled figs and a sage simple syrup, every sip tastes like fall.
Sage Simple Syrup Water Sugar Fresh sage Sage-Fig Cocktail Sage simple syrup Figs White rum Orange liqueur Lemon juice Club soda
To make the sage simple syrup, stir together sage, water and sugar. Over medium-high heat, bring the mixture to a boil. Turn off the heat, steep and strain.
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the fresh figs with the sage simple syrup until they fully break down and turn nice and jammy.
Add white rum, orange liqueur, lemon juice and ice to the cocktail shaker. Put on the top of the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 15 to 30 seconds.
Remove the top and strain the drink into an ice-filled glass and top with a splash of chilled club soda. For a fun touch, garnish with a fig slice or sage leaves.
Put this sage-fig cocktail on your fall menu and take advantage of fig season while it lasts. It's the perfect cocktail for any fall gathering.
I’m a sucker for anything with figs so I had to make this! It was delicious and I loved that it makes extra sage simple syrup. I’m going to try it with other cocktails too!
