I'm going to rename this one..
MY LATE LATE SUMMER, EARLY FALL COCKTAIL.
It's pretty darn tasty.
This was my first time to ever try Pisco,
and I must say that I am a fan.
(I'm thinking there may be a few other Pisco cocktails coming this way soon.)
If you follow on here and instagram,
you know that my fig tree is finally producing.
I could not be more excited!!
I started off the week with a fig appetizer,
and bringing the work week to an end with a tasty fig cocktail.
A girl couldn't ask for more.
(Just look at that condensation--I know you want it!!)
Fig Thyme Pisco Cocktail
1/2 ounce thyme simple syrup*
juice from 1/2 lime
1 ounce Grand Marnier
2 ounces Pisco
In a cocktail shaker, place 2 1/2 fig halves and smash. Add the simple syrup, lime juice, Grand Marnier, and Pisco. Add ice and shake until well mixed.
Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the other fig half and a sprig of thyme.
*Thyme Simple Syrup
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
5 sprigs thyme
Bring all ingredients to a boil and boil for 5 minutes until starting to thicken. Allow to cool completely. Transfer to a jar. Will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.
