RECIPE: Fig Cocktail For Fall & Winter

Here’s another special seasonal cocktail recipe, developed by Linnea Johansson, a New York City-based chef and party planner. Use it to treat your guests to something they’ve never had before.

The recipe makes one cocktail.



  • 2 ounces vodka (for excellent bargain vodka, try Russian Standard or Wódka)
  • 1/2 ounce maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fig purée (muddled figs or fig jam)
  • 2 ounces lemon juice
  • 1 ounce ginger beer
  • Ice
  • Garnish: a honey comb “log” dipped in maple syrup; alternate garnish, 1 small fig


    1. Muddle the fruit and syrup in a shaker, or add fig jam (which will add more sweetness to the cocktail). Add the lemon juice and vodka.
    2. Add ice and shake well. Strain into a glass and top with ginger beer.
    3. For garnish, dip a slice of honey comb into maple syrup and place atop the cocktail. (We didn’t want to create a potential mess of honeycomb dipped in maple syrup, leading to guests with sticky fingers, so we used a plump little fig, notched on the bottom and set on the rim.)
