Fig-Bourbon Fizz - Celebratory Sip for #SundaySupper's #IsabelsBirthdayBash


Today the Sunday Supper Movement crew is hosting a virtual party for our beloved founder Isabel...and it's been a surprise. But today is the day that we share our creations in her honor. I've been so excited to lift this glass to celebrate her birthday. Cheers, Isabel!

Ingredients makes 1 cocktail

  • 2 fresh whole, ripe figs (I used 1 brown mission and 1 green)
  • 2 brown sugar cubes
  • 1/2 t raw organic honey
  • 2-1/2 oz bourbon (I used Knob Creek)
  • ice cubes
  • 1/2 C sparkling water, chilled
  • thin slices of fig for garnish

Procedure
Combine figs and sugar in a chilled pint glass. Muddle together for approximately 1 minute. Add in the honey and the bourbon - that "a jigger and a pony's worth" if that means anything to you! 

Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice. Strain the fig mixture over the ice and top with sparkling water. 

Stir to fully combine and garnish with fresh fig slices. Serve immediately. Happy birthday, Isabel! Wish I were with you, in person, to lift a glass.


It was a tasty drink. I think I'll have to make these for my birthday.

Join me in celebrating Isabel's Birthday with all the delicious food and drinks her #SundaySupper family prepared!

  4. Oooooooh I have an unopened bottle of Knob Creek bourbon right now and this is just what I should make with it! Love the addition of figs. I'd never have thought to use them in a cocktail! (I just realized I said exactly what DB said, lol).

  7. I just saw fresh figs for the first time ever in a local store. I almost got them, but didn't know what I would do with them if I did.... And then I come home and see this. Guess who's going back to the store tomorrow!!
