This is the cocktail that launched quite a memorable evening. This one’s fun to watch, as the fig seeds float up and down with the Prosecco when you first serve it. The name is apropos of nothing, as I couldn’t come up with anything in the “fig” genre.
1 fresh fig, stem removed and quartered
1 sugar cube
1 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. St. Germain elderflower liqueur
Prosecco to top
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the cut fig and sugar. Add vodka, St. Germain, and ice. Shake well and strain into a champagne flute. Top with Prosecco. Serve immediately.
