Using fig infused gin!

A few weeks ago, I got the idea to infuse gin with figs. While I was at it, I infused some rum, too! The only problem is, what should I do with this boozy goodness?
 Gin on the left, rum on the right.

Luckily for me, the coworker who gave me the idea mentioned in passing that he serves the fig-infused gin with prosecco and thyme. I think he must have gotten the idea from an article online, available at this link

Stay tuned for a report!


  1. Just had a fig infused Gin cocktail at Chambar in Vancouver. Called the blue fig, it consisted of a straight up martini glass of infused gin served with a small bowl of crumbled stilton cheese. Lovely, just don't be tempted to put the cheese in the cocktail, just simply have taste of cheese, then a sip of gin.

  2. hooooly moly that is pure genius! Thanks for the idea.

  3. I've had that Blue Fig from the Chambar earlier this year. It was sooo good! Keeps coming back to my mind. Now I'll make some for myself.....
