About Figgin’ Thyme

  • Base Spirit Bourbon
  • Preparation Shaken
  • Flavor Boozy, Sweet
  • Served Up

Shanah Tovah!  Raise a glass (or two) to the new year with this festive cocktail inspired by one of the traditional dishes of Rosh Hashanah, fruit dipped in honey, which signifies a sweet new year. This celebratory drink features bourbon, fig and a homemade honey thyme syrup but what truly raises the bar on this drink is the bruleed fresh fig garnish. The juxtaposition of the crunchy, crystalized sugar with the smooth texture of the fruit is a truly sweet (and mouthwatering) experience.
