Sage Fig Recipe
You'll love how rich, sweet fig and smoky sage flavors complement each other in this fall cocktail. The sage shines through in an infused simple syrup, while fresh figs are muddled to achieve that trademark jammy sweetness. The drink is then finished with a splash of club soda for an effervescent touch, resulting in a wonderfully balanced cocktail.
2 Black mission figs, halved
2 oz. White rum
1 oz. Orange liqueur
Chilled club soda
Combine the sage, water, and sugar in a small saucepan.
Muddle the figs with the sage simple syrup in a cocktail shaker until mostly broken down.
If you can't find fresh figs, you can use a cup of dried figs for the sage in the simple syrup. Dried figs have a deeper flavor than fresh figs but are still delicious and flavorful. You can substitute 2 tablespoons of fig jam for the muddled fresh figs.
