Mocktails are a thing these days. Whatever the reason for skipping out on alcohol, composed and thoughtful drinks are a pleasant treat. The vanilla fig mocktail is fab for a variety of reasons. It's simple to make, using only 4 ingredients. It's also big on flavor, with sweet fig and vanilla combining with just a splash of lemon acidity to cut through. If you want to skip out on the alcohol, give this mocktail a whirl for yourself.
2 heaping Tbsp. fig jam
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup vanilla
juice of 1/2 lemon
In a bowl, combine the jam, lemon juice and sugar until well mixed. Add in about 2 to 4 Tbsp. of the sparkling water and mix well. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to get rid of the seeds. Pour the fig mixture into a martini glass then top with remaining sparkling water. Stir gently to combine.
