End of Summer Fig Smash

By on August 3, 2022

Ingredients for the “smash”

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup water

sprigs of rosemary

4 figs, sliced in half, plus 1 more for garnishing the drinks


Ingredients for the Cocktails

6 ounces booze of your choice (rum, bourbon, gin, tequila all work, so pick your fave!)

juice of 1 lemon

2 – 4 ounces of the “smash”, depending on your tastebuds



Make the “not-so-simple” syrup by heating the sugar, water and rosemary until the sugar has dissolved and the rosemary is fragrant. Strain, and add to the blender with the figs. Blend with a few pulses.


Use a Boston shaker to add the cocktail ingredients, taste, and adjust as necessary. Shake vigorously with plenty of ice and strain into 2 cocktail glasses. Garnish with fig slices or half of a small fig.
