Fig Vodka Gimlet Recipe
The fresh fig leaf flavor was introduced into this cocktail using a simple syrup of sugar, water, and fresh fig leaves. Tito's Vodka was the spirit of choice for this gimlet and is a favorite of ours since it's reasonably priced and has a refined flavor that compliments artisanal cocktails. However, feel free to use any vodka you want.
Over medium-high heat, mix the water, sugar, and fig leaves in a medium saucepan. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes while stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Put all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Pour into a coupe glass.
