Fig & Rosemary Sparkling Cocktail

Fall-Fig-Cocktail-Feature

Happy First Day of Fall!  With the seasons quickly changing, we've been dying to get our hands on some figs to mix into cocktails and to add a little something sweet to fall entertaining cheese boards.  Finding them proved to be difficult since figs aren't generally carried at most big-chain grocery stores, but when we finally spotted them at a downtown LA farmer's market, we grabbed all we could and headed straight for the kitchen.  After a bit of research on fig cocktails, we stumbled across this one that sounded too good to pass up.  We made a few adjustments as we went along to make it our own.  Check it out below!

Timing: 1 hour total
Yield: 4 cocktails

INGREDIENTS

Rosemary Simple Syrup

1 cup honey
1 cup water
3 sprigs of fresh rosemary

Cocktail

1/2 cup fig puree (2 cups fresh figs, 4 tbs. water blended in a food processor)
4 oz. chilled vodka
Juice from 2 lemons (peel for garnish)
4 oz. Rosemary Simple Syrup
ONEHOPE Sparkling Wine
Ice

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine honey, water, and fresh rosemary into a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally until the mixture has reduced by half.  Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool completely.  We transferred to a jar and placed it in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  2. While simple syrup is chilling, remove stems from figs and place all but two figs in a food processor.  Pulse to puree until consistency resembles that of apple sauce.  Set aside.
  3. Using a citrus peeler, peel your lemons (4 ribbons - one for each cocktail).  Juice both lemons and set juice aside.
  4. Once your simple syrup has chilled completely, combine syrup, fig puree, chilled vodka, lemon juice, and ice in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously.
  5. Fill two glasses with ice and pour cocktail mixture into each glass. Top with ONEHOPE Sparkling Brut and garnish with lemon peel, fresh rosemary, and one half fig each.  Cheers!
