With The Marriage of Figaro cocktail, you can enjoy a tasty bourbon with a hint of figs. You will love it, since it is a natural pairing of flavors. This is certainly a homemade infusion, but you can use it to jazz up other whiskey cocktails such as the Manhattan for a unique twist. This recipe is not just an infusion, but is full of a wide range of ingredients and flavors. Judy Bronson did a fantastic job developing the product, finding a balance between the unique ingredients in it.
An infusion of fig bourbon is blended with a balance of regular bourbon and Cardamaro paired with an apple allspice dram for a great finish. The next time you want to use an amaro (such as Averna), it is highly recommended to hold out for Cardamaro instead. There is cardoon (artichoke-like) and blessed thistle in it, and it tends to be less bitter than other options.
- A specific variety of figs is chosen for this whiskey and it is a perfect match. The black mission fig is very sweet, while the brown Turkish fig is noticeably milder and lighter in flavor.
- During the two months that the bourbon is stored in the fridge, it will taste as good as new.
