FIGGY BOURBON WITH 1889 AROMATIC BITTERS
- 1 ½ oz bourbon
- ¾ oz Cointreau
- ¾ oz fig simple syrup (recipe below)
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 2-3 dashes 1889 Aromatic Bitters
Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes; shake vigorously. Strain mixture into cocktail glass. Garnish with shaved orange peel.
- ½ c. brown sugar
- ½ c. water
- 3 fresh Mission figs (stems removed, finely chopped)
Add brown sugar, water, and figs to a small saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium low until the sugar is dissolved and the figs are very soft, using the back of a wooden spoon to stir the mixture and mash the figs as they cook. Maintain a low simmer to avoid burning the sugar (do not let the mixture boil). Remove the saucepan from heat, and cool the mixture completely before using. Store remaining simple syrup in the refrigerator for up to one week.
