Fig Balsamic Old Fashioned Cocktail

Jul 11, 2022 | Recipe

The Old Fashion is believed to be the first drink to be labeled a “Cocktail”. The fig and orange flavors in this drink compliment the bourbon while the fig balsamic serves to deepen and round out the taste in this classic cocktail.

Serving: 1


  • 1 Dried Fig
  • ½ Teaspoon Brown Sugar
  • 1 ½ Ounces Bourbon
  • ½ Ounce Pulp-Free Orange Juice
  • 1 Teaspoon More Than Olives Fig Balsamic*
  • Dash Orange Bitters
  • Rosemary Sprig
  • Orange Slice

Remove the fig stem and cut the dried fig into quarters. Put the fig pieces in the bottom of a cocktail, shaker and add the brown sugar. Muddle the two together until it becomes a paste. 

Add the bourbon, orange juice, More Than Olives Fig Balsamic, orange bitters, and a small sprig of rosemary. Place the cover on the shaker and shake to mix the ingredients together.

Add ice cubes to the shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Garnish the side of the glass with a slice of fresh orange.

Serve immediately. Enjoy! 

*You can substitute More Than Olives Traditional Aged Balsamic

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
