It’s about figgin thyme for a cocktail. A fig and thyme cocktail, that is.

I go wild when I see figs at the grocery store. There’s something so magical about them. Their shape, their colors, and their texture. They’re one of the only ingredients I will get every single time regardless of if I have a use for them or not.

So seeing as figs are around right now, I just HAD to make a fig cocktail. Figs are weirdly fall-ish, making them perfect for an autumnal cocktail. But just because it’s autumnal doesn’t mean it has to be all orange and maroon.

This cocktail has all the flavors of fall- herbacious thyme, tart hard cider, and warm figgies- in a gorgeous coral pink presentation.

I’m a firm believer that cocktails are drinks that anyone can make at home. You don’t need five different aperitifs, two bitters, and smoked salt to make a delicious and dynamic cocktail. You just need ingredients that blend together in a way that compliments each other well.

So this Fig and Thyme cocktail is made entirely with things you can get at any store- figs, lemons, thyme, and hard cider.

Of course the low key star in this cocktail is Absolut Elyx, a copper distilled vodka. I say low key because it’s so crisp and clean, it blends into any flavor profile.

RECIPE

It's About Figgin' Thyme {Fig and Thyme Cocktail}

Ingredients

    for the thyme simple syrup

    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 large bunch fresh thyme leaves (leave out a few for garnish)

    for one cocktail

    • 2 fresh figs
    • 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
    • 3/4 oz thyme syrup
    • 1.5 oz Absolut Elyx vodka
    • 1.5 oz hard cider

    Directions

    In a small saucepan over low heat, simmer the sugar, water, and thyme leaves for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to sit for at least 10 more minutes so the thyme infuses into the syrup.
    To make the cocktail, muddle figs and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker. Add in a generous scoop of ice, along with lemon juice, 3/4 oz of the thyme syrup, and vodka. Shake until well chilled, then strain into a coupe glass. Top with 1.5 oz hard cider (or to the brim of the glass). Garnish with a slice of fig and a sprig of thyme!

    Is the greenery pictured just some prop? It is certainly not ‘thyme.’
