Ingredients

For the drink

  • 1 1/2 Ounce Don Julio Añejo Tequila
  • 1/2 Pound fig preserves
  • 1/2 Ounce orange juice
  • 5 fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/2 Ounce ginger syrup

For the ginger syrup

  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • One 2-inch piece fresh ginger, finely chopped

Directions

For the drink

In a shaker, muddle all the ingredients except the ginger syrup. Add the ginger syrup and fill with ice. Shake well and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice or a highball glass without ice. Garnish with a rosemary sprig.

For the ginger syrup

Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Remove from the heat and let cool completely. Place the ginger in a mesh strainer and pour the mixture over the top. Press the ginger with a muddler or the back of a spoon to remove as much liquid as possible.

Fall Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Fall Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
