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.
