Entertaining: Gin Fig Fizz

 This week's cocktail is the Gin Fig Fizz! I picked up figs over the weekend and have been trying to come up with a creative cocktail. I wanted something light and crisp and decided to make fig infused simple syrup and add it to my standby drink of choice, gin and soda water. I like to make a large batch of simple syrup and store it in a mason jar in the fridge, it keeps a few weeks.  Enjoy!
