2 ounces chilled unsweetened apple cider
1 ounce Brown Sugar-Fig Syrup
2 dashes of Fee Brothers Old Fashion aromatic bitters (optional - see Note)
1 lemon twist, for garnish
How to Make It
In a cocktail shaker, combine the cider, fig syrup and bitters. Fill the shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with the lemon twist.
The bitters here are alcohol-based. For a completely nonalcoholic cocktail, leave them out.
