This sweet, autumn variation on a Manhattan is the perfect drink to sip by the fireplace. It takes a little DIY effort, but it’s worth it.

Make some fig bourbon for this tipple, and if you’re really feeling like a mixologist, make the bitters yourself, too. Dubonnet is an aperitif much like sweet vermouth, and it can be found in most liquor stores.

This is a sophisticated treat for an upscale Halloween party or holiday gathering. Enjoy!

Pardon my pun … I couldn’t resist.

Hey, Fig Spender
