Fig & Thyme Cocktail

The figs I brought home this week were extremely tender, unusually sweet, and provided the inspiration for a few Fall cocktails. Here's one for today:

Fig & Thyme Cocktail
3 ounces vodka
1 ounce simple syrup
Squeeze of lemon
4 dashes orange bitters
Fresh, organic figs
Fresh thyme

Directions: Gently muddle the vodka, figs, and thyme. Filter a few times for clarity. Strain into a shaker and add simple syrup, lemon, and bitters. Shake well and pour into a martini glass or serve over ice.
