It’s About Figgin’ Thyme {Fig and Thyme Cocktail}

The cocktail is a refreshing summer sipper; the figgy flavor brings out the sweetness in your drink. The combination reminds me of my grandma’s Go-To Herbal Tea mix, and I like to play around with it by adding different things like gin or peach puree.

“It’s About Figgin’ Thyme {Fig and Thyme Cocktail}” is a cocktail that combines figs, gin, and thyme. This drink is perfect for the warm summer months.

It’s all about getting some thyme for a drink. That is, a fig and thyme cocktail.

When I see figs at the grocery store, I go crazy. They have a certain enchantment about them. Their texture, color, and form are all unique. They’re one of the few ingredients I’ll buy regardless of whether I have a purpose for them or not.

Because figs are in season right now, I had to prepare a fig cocktail. Figs have an oddly autumnal flavor, making them ideal for an autumnal cocktail. It doesn’t have to be all orange and maroon simply because it’s October.

In a lovely coral pink appearance, this drink combines all the tastes of fall: herbacious thyme, sour hard cider, and warm figgies.

Cocktails, in my opinion, are beverages that everyone can create at home. To prepare a good and exciting cocktail, you don’t need five different aperitifs, two bitters, and smoked salt. All you need are elements that combine nicely together and complement each other.

This Fig and Thyme cocktail is composed completely with store-bought ingredients, including figs, lemons, thyme, and hard cider.

Absolut Elyx, a copper-distilled vodka, is, of course, the low-key star of this drink. It’s called low-key because it’s so crisp and pure that it goes with any taste profile.

This drink is hard to top if you’re looking for a tasty, simple, and gorgeous beverage for the holidays.

I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving this Thursday. It is, without a doubt, my all-time favorite holiday. 3 EAT AS MUCH AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN

Ingredients

To make the thyme simple syrup, combine the following ingredients in a small bowl.

  • 1 pound of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 pound of fresh thyme leaves (leave out a few for garnish)

a single cocktail:

  • 2 figs (fresh)
  • fresh lemon juice, 3/4 ounce
  • thyme syrup, 3/4 ounce
  • Absolut Elyx vodka, 1.5 ounce
  • 1.5 ounces of hard cider

Instructions

  1. 5 minutes over low heat, boil the sugar, water, and thyme leaves in a small pot. Remove from heat and let aside for at least 10 minutes to enable the thyme to infuse the syrup.
  2. Muddle the figs and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker to prepare the drink. Add a large scoop of ice, lemon juice, 3/4 oz. thyme syrup, and vodka to the glass. Shake vigorously until very cold, then pour into a coupe glass. 1.5 ounce hard cider on top (or to the brim of the glass). Serve with a fig slice and a sprig of thyme as a garnish!
