½ cup super fine sugar
½ cup water
4-5 fresh figs, more for garnish
2 thyme sprigs, more for garnish
1 ¼ oz. gin
2 ½ Tablespoons fig syrup
1 teaspoon honey
juice of half a lemon
(simple syrup) Heat sugar, honey, water and figs over low to medium heat for 5-10 minutes, until sugar dissolves and figs soften. Remove from heat, add thyme – let infuse for 30 minutes. Strain mixture into a clean jar – mixture will keep for 3-4 weeks in the fridge. (cocktail) Fill glass with ice, add gin, fig syrup, lemon juice and a splash of apple cider. Stir gently, top with soda water, garnish with fresh fig, thyme sprig and cinnamon stick.
