Valentine’s Day is drawing closer and if you want to surprise the love of your life with a sweet cocktail, add this one to the menu! I love playing with flavor twists on a classic Old Fashioned and let me tell you…this fig simple syrup will give you goosebumps! It’s THAT good!

Mixing chocolate, sweet & tangy figs, and bourbon for a drink is the ultimate sign of love! Now, if bourbon is not your thing or you know your date won’t drink bourbon, we have another perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail from last year that you can enjoy. Find it here on our blog!
