Happy weekend! It’s no secret that my favorite beverage of all time is a well-made whisky sour. This past summer, I made a name for myself amongst my coworkers for unfailingly having a whisky sour every time we met up for happy hour. So imagine my joy when I stumbled up this recipe from Salt and Smoke Food for a fig whisky sour. I’ll say that again: FIG. WHISKY SOUR. Two of my favorite things just got a mashup, and I couldn’t be happier. And how appropriate for mid-autumn, right??

Fig Whisky Sour from Salt and Smoke
You Will Need:
- 3oz bourbon
- Freshly squeezed juice of 2 lemons
- Freshly squeezed juice of 2 limes
- 1/3 cup simple syrup (directions at the end of the recipe)
- 3 Black Jack figs (or others), stems removed
- Ice cubes
How to make it:
- At the bottom of a cocktail shaker muddle the figs, pour in the bourbon. Add lemon juice, lime juice, and syrup. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and pour in the drink mix 2/3 full. Shake for 15 seconds and pour into glasses. Serve ice cold.
- To make simple syrup, bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a boil, and simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved. Chill before using. You can also put ingredients in a mason jar and screw on the lid and shake until the sugar is dissolved.
