Fig and Bourbon Cocktail

Author Notes: I came up with this concoction when I was working on a Thanksgiving story and needed the perfect cocktail that would look elegant on a silver tray and be delicious and Fall inspired. Figs have a very short season but fig jam is always in steady supply making this elegant cocktail appropriate year round. Brita
