Make It: Fig Sidecar

Ooh, do we have the perfect fall concoction to share with you today! As the autumn air seems to keep getting crisper and breezier we’ll enjoy this tasty and festive cocktail curled up fireside with a good book in hand. It comes to us from Lisa Dupar of Dupar & Company {a delectably talented chef and outstanding caterer in the Seattle-area for nearly 25 years} and we’re thrilled to share. Not only do all of the ingredients sound positively refreshing together, but we love the sound of this fig syrup….

What is on your agenda for the weekend? Will you take a moment to slow down, enjoy the sights and sounds of this fresh season and perhaps enjoy a Fig Sidecar or two?
