Thirsty Thursday--Fig Thyme Pisco Cocktail

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

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.


Enjoy,
