Figgy Manhattan

November 15, 2013

I got a little overzealous at the Farmer’s Market last month and overindulged in figs.  Not knowing what to do with the extra basket (or 3), I decided to revisit my infused alcohol obsession and created some Fig-infused Bourbon (slice figs in half and cover with bourbon – infuse for 1 month).

Now that my infusion is good and ready, I wanted to figure out the perfect recipe to unveil my creation… so I whipped up a Fig Manhattan, to really showcase the infusion.

  • 3 oz Fig Infused Bourbon
  • 1/5 oz Dry Vermouth
  • Dash of Angostura Bitters

Combine all ingredients into an ice filled shaker, shake and strain into a martini glass.  Top with a Luxardo cherry. Bottoms up!
