2 cups bourbon

Fizz:

1 fresh fig, halved

2 teaspoons pure maple syrup (Grade B) 

Squeeze of lemon juice, plus 2 lemon twists, for garnish

Dashes of bitters 

Ginger beer, very cold 

Directions

Special equipment:
a pint jar with a tight-fitting lid
  1. For the fig-infused bourbon: Put the figs in a pint jar, pour over the bourbon and cover tightly. Set aside in a cool, dark place for at least 2 days and up to 7 days.
