A cocktail to toast Autumn’s arrival…
This cocktail that is naturally sweet. I’m not a fan of overly sugary cocktails.
Figs tend to vary quite a bit in terms of sweetness– some ripe figs are very sweet, while others are only mildly so. You can always add a drop of honey if this is the case. You can make the fig puree ahead, but the cocktail tastes best if stirred and mixed just before serving.

• ½ shot of organic apple cider
