Did you know Cloak & Dinner has a book club? Why yes we do, and our first task is tackling the whole George R.R. Martin manifesto while brainstorming appropriate feast like courses for the eventual "Game of Thrones" C&D event in the near future... GET EXCITED!
Thankfully our awesome mixologist Isaac conjured up a fitting cocktail to accompany a long stint of reading in a cozy chair. From our Cloak & Dinner: The Time Machine, here's a little "how to" on the Ginger Figgle!
1 oz fresh squeezed OJ
1 fresh fig (or 2 spoons fig jam)
2 slices fresh ginger root
Press the ginger root and add a sliced fig or 2 spoonfuls of fig jam and muddle. Add in the gin and orange juice and shake well. Strain and serve in a stemmed cocktail glass. Garnish with a slice of fresh fig and/or orange spiral and candied ginger.
