Poached Fig Margarita
Nothing says party like a margarita. The poached fig margarita served at Marc Forgione’s New York City restaurant, American Cut, takes a traditional margarita and transforms it into a low-tail libation that focuses on flavors of dried orange and poached fig. It calls for just a touch of tequila, so the alcohol is low without compromising the flavor or fun of a margarita.At American Cut, Forgione poaches his figs in Pedro Ximénez and adds them to Milagro reposado and garnishes with dried orange. In our version, we reduced the tequila count by half and added a splash of fresh orange juice. The addition of the poaching liquid brings an intense flavor to the drink.To poach, boil figs in a large saucepan with ½ cup of orange juice and 2 ounces tequila. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook uncovered for 10 minutes until the liquid is reduced by one-third. Remove figs with a slotted spoon and reserve the liquid for the cocktail

Fig Sidecar
Old-school cocktails like the sidecar have risen in popularity lately. The Fig Sidecar at the Beverly Hills Hotel is one of the place’s most popular drinks. Made with fig-infused Remy Martin 1738 cognac and spiced brown sugar, it’s a warm and toasty cocktail that is fitting for the flavors of Thanksgiving. This version cuts the cognac by half and adds more flavor-enhancing fresh lemon juice. Infuse your cognac by de-stemming and halving black mission figs and letting them steep in cognac with brown sugar syrup for up to a week.

As soon as I saw their robust, plump, and purple bodies at the farmer's market stand, I knew I had to take them home. I'm not much of a baker, but when it comes to figs, there's little else I'd rather do with them then create something sweet. I took a fairly easy route, which I think you'll agree with, and the results were phenomenal.  Click here to see 8 Fantastic Fig Recipes.

Fig and Goat Cheese Sandwich
Fresh figs are a delicious warm weather treat but they’re highly perishable so don’t buy them more than a day or two in advance (and be sure to store them in your refrigerator). When you’re ready to use your figs, try them sliced and served on bread with goat cheese, honey, black pepper, and greens for a simple and delicious summer sandwich.

This morning I woke up dreaming of jammy, baked figs. When they are ripe and in season, I would happily eat them just as they are (maybe with some cheese and honey). Still, this tart is so autumnal yet bright with summer flavors that I had to give it a try.
