  • 1 cup water

  • 4.5 ounces fig vodka
  • soda water

Notes

FOR FIG INFUSED VODKA:

- 8 ounces fresh figs, rinsed and cut in half

- 750 mL vodka

- 1 air tight jar

cheesecloth

Directions:

Place figs and vodka in air tight jar. Seal and let sit in refrigerator for a minimum of 5 days to a few weeks. The key is to taste every few days after the 5 day period until the vodka is to your liking! Strain contents of jar through cheese cloth to separate the vodka from the figs/stems/seeds. Discard fruit remnants and place vodka in a clean jar. Enjoy!

    This sounds sooo yummy! I think I’ll try and make this for the Christmas holiday. Nothing like something sweet and herby to enjoy the holiday season. I’m a bit worried about continuously tasting the vodka, though. Will there be anything left in the end?!?

    My figs are way over. Any way to use reconstituted dried ones? ‘Cause this drinks sounds very delicious!

    Would dried figs work for the vodka infusion? Perhaps cut up, maybe soak for a couple weeks? I have never found fresh figs in my ara. 🙁 This sounds ahhhhmazing.

    Just stumbled across your blog! Beautiful photos! I am so going to try this recipe. I do a vodka, rosemary martini with St. Germain liqueur but this looks like it could be even better and less strong on the alcohol factor. Thanks for sharing this! x
