There is no superior way to unwind than with a fresh fig margarita. This delicious group-satisfying fig cocktail is a cinch to make for yourself or for a group!
There is a thing amazing about when bloggers get together to share recipes as a team. I try out to join any time doable. You might have found that I’ve been sharing a lot more and a lot more cocktails on the website lately like the blackberry prosecco mojitos and blood orange margaritas. I am continuing that pattern by signing up for up with some amazing females for Margarita Week hosted by Kate from Hola Jalapeno. My contribution are these fresh fig margaritas.
My neighborhood develop store from time to time carries pleasurable develop that I enjoy to get and perform with. A couple of times they’ve stocked passion fruit, dragon fruit…right now they have jackfruit offered. They regularly carry in guava and cactus leaves (which are terrific in a smoothie by the way) And on good days they will have a single or two kinds of fresh figs. They are inclined to be a little bit expensive, but they are generally truly worth the splurge for me and I grabbed a couple of containers.
Considering the fact that I required to genuinely celebrate the figs for their incredible flavor and shade when they are fresh, I determined to make a fresh fig syrup/puree. For this, I basically positioned cut figs, a contact of lavender, and sugar together and permit it sit right away the same as if I have been to make shrubs. Only this time I blend it with tequila as an alternative of apple cider vinegar. The outcome is a genuinely attractive peachy shade puree/syrup. You do close up with fairly a couple of fig seeds, but they really do not include a lot to the texture so you can depart them in or you can strain the combination to remove them.
This slower procedure keeps the fresh flavor of the fig with no producing it flavor jammy which is nice, but will give a lot more of a Fig Newton-ness to the cocktail. As an alternative the flavor is a lot more mild and superior enhances the citrus flavors in the lime and triple sec. I included a small amount of money of lavender to include floral notes to enrich the Spring profile. So the fresh fig margarita does in truth taste…fresh. I recommend producing more substantial batches of the fresh fig syrup to have on-hand as you need to have it. The syrup will final for about five days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
This fresh fig margarita is likely to be the emphasize of your Cinco de Mayo and summer barbecues. When you have a single of these in your hand, every thing is ideal in the globe. So get a glass and celebrate (responsibly) with me!
