Fig Manhattan


Happy Veteran’s Day! We try to make our holidays count for both rest and celebration. Trying a new drink with friends is a great way to do that and this fig Manhattan gives a fun twist to a more traditional fall drink. Today is a great day to freshen up your bar skills and bridge the party gap into the holidays.

To make the Fig Manhattan use 3/4 oz sweet vermouth, 2 1/2 oz burbon whiskey, 1 1/2 oz thyme simple syrup, 1 dash of orange bitters and one fig quartered.

In a mixing glass, muddle the quartered fig with the thyme simple syrup. Top with ice, then add the vermouth, whisky and orange bitters. Shake until cold and strain into a chilled champagne glass. Add in extra fig and a sprig of thyme for garnish.
