So when LeNell’s newsletter came with a link to a cocktail contest, I jumped at the chance to show off my skills. After much deliberation, care attention to the rules and a focus panel of one (Adam) I came up with: The Flying Fig. Its light and fragrant and a perfect aperitif. As you can see, it is a beautiful drink as well.
The Flying Fig
2 oz Square One Vodka
Muddle diced fig in the Elderflower liquor (reserve one slice for garnish). Add cracked ice, vodka, lemon juice and agave, Shake vigorously. Slap one mint leaf, rim and drop in chilled cocktail glass along with reserved fig slice. Strain cocktail into glass.
