Difficulty: Moderate

Fig & Basi Smash


Handful Fresh Basil

25ml Espirit De Figue Liquer

25ml Vodka

1 Tsp Fig Jam

25ml Honey Syrup

25ml Soda

Put all the ingredients aside from the Soda into an ice filled shaker. Shake all the ingredients hard and fast and strain into an ice filled tumbler or high ball glass. Top with Soda, garnish with fresh fig & basil.

Tip: To make a honey syrup mix equal parts water & honey in a pan and gently heat on the stove until the honey has completely dissolved. Leave to cool & set aside. This can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 month.
