Esprit de Figues sparkling cocktail

One of the best parts of my job is getting to try new things and sometimes, those things are alcoholic beverages, which makes me even happier.

A bottle of Esprit de Figues, a new fig liqueur from France, recently landed on my desk and after much oohing and ahhing over how pretty it looked, I decided to pop it in my bag for my long weekend in Bangalow.

Made from real Violette de Bordeaux figs and crafted with the highest level of expertise in a 150-year-old family distillery in Burgundy, France, Esprit De Figues is light and fruity, but not sickly sweet.

Because I was trying to travel light, and I’m not much of a mixologist, I decided to keep things simple and try Esprit de Figues’ signature serve –  the Esprit de Fizz.

With just two ingredients, the recipe is easy to remember and serve, especially if you’re having a party.

30ml Esprit de Figues

Pour bubbly into a champagne flute. Top with Esprit de Figues. Garnish with a small slice of fresh fig & lemon zest.

Next on the list to try is Fig Sangria.
