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.

Ingredients

1 ounce fig-infused cognac

½ ounce Cointreau

2 ounces fresh lemon juice

Lemon twist for garnish

Directions

Add ice to a mixing glass and add all ingredients.

Shake and pour into a chilled martini glass with a sugared rim.

Garnish with a spiral lemon twist.
