What to Drink This Week: Figs and Bourbon PermalinkWritten by Susan Thanavaro | Monday, July 14th, 2014

Black Mission Fig Old-Fashioned

Our test kitchen, and office, is always on the search for a delicious and balanced cocktail. Figs are in season for a short period of time and our Dried Organic Black Mission Figs are full of flavor and provide the perfect substitute to fresh figs. Naturally, fruit and bourbon pair together. So, we thought, why not try a spin on the traditional old-fashioned cocktail? It was 10 in the morning and we started muddling, shaking, and pouring. Everyone agreed that is was not only worthy enough to enjoy at home, but to also share with friends. So here you go friends! Cheers!

  • 1 1/2 oz Bourbon
