Summer is almost wrapping up, but we can't wait for fall: toast the change of seasons with some tequila, rosemary, figs, and ginger.
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.
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.
