The most delicious Fig Champagne Cocktail! Muddle fresh figs with some brown sugar and a little squeeze of lemon. Once you have a deliciously syrupy quick fig compote of sorts, add it to your crushed ice and top it with prosecco bubbly!
10 to 12ripe figssliced and stems removed, plus a few extra for garnish
the juice of 1 lemon
1750mL chilled bottle of prosecco
Note: if you have reeeeally small figs, there might be a chance that you need a few more. Make sure the figs are soft and ripe and juicy!
In the bottom of a large glass or jar, add the figs, the brown sugar and the lemon juice. Use a cocktail muddler to mash and muddle the mixture for a full 5 minutes or so, until the figs break down and you have a syrupy mix. You can remove and large pieces of the fig skin at this time too.
Add ice to the glass (crushed or cubed - your choice!) and add in your fig mixture. You can do 2 to 3 tablespoons per glass or just divide it evenly. Top each glass with prosecco, add a sliced fig in there and serve!
