Fig Vanilla Bean and Gin Cocktail Recipe

Fig, Vanilla Bean + Gin Cocktail-3
Admittedly, I’m not really much of a drinker. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love a cold glass of white wine at the end of a long day as much as the next guy, but I’m more of a one and done kind of gal. I tend to approach my liquor game as more of a quality over quantity thing, allowing me to really savour the cocktail experience. I’m no saint, I assure you, I just typically tend to reserve my calories for dessert, if I’m being honest. But when it comes to my friend Sarah’s fig vanilla bean and gin cocktail? Well, all bets are instantly off. Trust me when I say you’re going to want to grab her recipe below, and whip up a pitcher (or two) immediately, if not sooner. Fig, Vanilla Bean + Gin Cocktail-4 Fig, Vanilla Bean + Gin Cocktail-2 Fig, Vanilla Bean + Gin Cocktail

Ingredients
  1. FOR THE SIMPLE SYRUP
  2. 6 fresh figs, stems removed and halved
  3. 1/2 cup sugar
  4. 1/2 cup water
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or scrape the seeds from 1 vanilla bean)
  6. FOR THE COCKTAIL
  7. 1 1/2 ounces gin
  8. 1/2 ounce Fig + Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup (recipe below)
  9. 2 dashes orange bitters
  10. 2-4 ounces tonic
  11. Ice
Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients to a small saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5-7 minutes or until figs break down. Allow to cool, and strain using a fine mesh strainer.
  2. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to one week. Yields about 5-6 ounces of syrup (enough for 10-12 cocktails).*
Notes
  1. *Note: This syrup doesn't have to be used only for this drink! Add it to iced tea or drizzle on top of pancakes. You can also make a pitcher's worth of the Fig, Vanilla Bean + Gin Cocktail if you want to serve a crowd!
