Last month, my best friend did a crazy thing and booked a 12 week trip to England. To commemorate the beginning of such an adventure, an excited group of us got together to wish her well and express our envy over cocktails and cheese. Such an event merits a special cocktail and after much research (ie: Pinterest), and a little experimentation, I settled on crowing the occasion with this Figgy Fizz cocktail.
One of the things I have enjoyed most about this lingering summer has been the prolonged fig season. As I learned last year, fig season is very much a thing and this year I have made a point of taking full advantage of it. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on some fresh figs, I would highly recommend this yummy little cocktail.
