Cooks commonly list autumn (fall) as their favourite season — a time of abundant overlap between all of summer’s sweet and sun-drenched produce, with humble pumpkin (winter squash), pears and apples coming into season to see us right through the cooler months. It’s a brilliant time for making cocktails, too.

Figs are the seed-studded jewels of the season, and might have you thinking of pizzas, salads and desserts — or coiling them up inside a sliver of prosciutto — but making a cold-process syrup of figs is the ultimate celebration of the fruit in drink form. Even the leaves can be used as a flavouring, adding a simple yet unexpected twist to a martini.

Some of the other autumn ingredients that beg to be muddled or blended into a cocktail include plums, grapes, kiwi fruit, persimmons and even pumpkin.
