Ginger Fig Sparkler

Ginger Fig Sparkler // Feast + West

Somehow, I missed out on figs this year. Apparently last winter was particularly harsh, so my mom’s and aunt’s fig trees didn’t provide as well this time around. Luckily, I came across two jars of fig jam I made last year and thought of two things:

  1. These amazing Almond + Fig Thumbprint Cookies. (I think I need to make some more.)
  2. This Improved Gin + Jam Cocktail from a couple months ago.

Inspired by these ideas, I created this Ginger Fig Sparkler, a bright and tangy drink with a few spoonfuls of the jam, plus some vodka, lemon juice, ginger ale and thyme. The ginger ale brings bubbles, making this drink quite sparkly indeed.
