Thirsty Thursday--Fig Thyme Pisco Cocktail

I'm going to rename this one..


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

3 figs, cut in half
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.
