Phenomenal Fig — Jack Daniel’s Tennesse Whiskey

Whatever a “figgy pudding” is, we doubt it holds a candle to this fig and whiskey cocktail. Leave the pudding to the kids and Charles Dickens. This is a drink worth caroling about.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey
  • .5 oz Florida orange juice, fresh
  • .5 oz Maple syrup grade B
  • 1 ea Fresh fig cut into quarters
  • .5 oz Balsamic vinegar

Directions:

Muddle 3/4 of the fig with the maple syrup in a Boston shaker. Add orange juice, Jack Daniel’s, and Balsamic vinegar and fill with ice. Shake vigorously, double strain onto large ice cube, and garnish with orange peel and 1/4 fig.
