The boy and his poison: The Figata

I'm currently doing my best at channelling Hemmingway, or at any rate an iPad equipped, cigar toting Hunter S Thompson. Holed up in a country retreat on the outskirts of Bath, I've decided to elegantly sip away a post-birthday hangover in decadent style.

The most memorable entry on the bar tab from last night was a delicious twist on a whisky sour called a Figata. It has a perfect bourbon and lime base, rich sugary depth from fig jam and even a cute Peychaud swirl on the top, it has all the tastes of Winter with all the promise of Summer, making for a perfect Spring drink.

You'll need:
  • 50 ml bourbon
  • 25 ml lime juice
  • 2 tsp of fig jam
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 dash of Peychaud bitters

Then shake:
  • Pour all the ingredients into a shaker and dry shake for a few seconds to get the egg white to mix
  • Add ice to the shaker and continue to shake for 10 seconds
  • Pour into a cocktail glass until 2/3 full, take the top off of the shaker and then spoon some of the delicious foam into the glass.
  • Put one more dash of bitters on the foam and swirl with a cocktail stick
