The inspiration to make a fig leaf tincture to try in a cocktail came from Analiese Gregory (Ed’s business partner and head chef at Bar Brosé in Sydney), when she made a tasty fig leaf custard from leaves gathered from a friend’s farm in the Hawkesbury. The flavour of fig leaves is a little hard to describe — it’s reminiscent of almond, honey and even coconut — but flavour can be a really personal thing; one person tastes something, while somebody else gets something totally different!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125ml 100-proof (or higher) vodka
5 fig leaves, washes, stems removed, finely chopped

Method

  1. Combine the vodka and fig leaves in a sealable jar and leave in a cool, dark place for 1 week. Strain through muslin (cheesecloth) or through a coffee filter paper. Store in a small bottle in the refrigerator, where the tincture will last for months if not years.
