7 Tasty Fruit Cocktails

  • 6 of 7

6. Fig Heaven

This is a time-intensive cocktail that I adapted from Star Chefs. You have to make the fig liqueur before you can even get started with the cocktails. But really, this is the perfect fig cocktail and an excellent way to impress your guests.

Fig Heaven
Fig Liqueur:
6 ounces fresh black mission figs
1 liter vodka
8 ounces sugar

Cocktail:
Juice of orange
Juice of lime
oz. fig liqueur
1 oz. vodka

Method
For the Fig Liqueur:

1. Infuse the figs into the vodka. Once infused, pour the contents into a large sauce pan and add the sugar, cooking the mixture on high heat until the alcohol begins to evaporate. Be incredibly careful cooking alcohol over an open flame. You must have proper ventilation.

2. Reduce the mixture by 20 percent. Chill in an ice bath and strain with a cheese cloth.

For the Cocktail:

1. Add ingredients into a shaker glass with ice. Shake really well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with herbs or cucumber.

Serves 1

I love cocktails ... sitting on a warm summer evening in a bar with a mojito is great.
