Vanilla Fig Bourbon Recipe
2 cups dried mission figs
1 vanilla bean
bourbon to fill a quart jar
Put the figs in a quart mason jar. Cut the vanilla bean in half and add to the jar. Fill with enough bourbon to cover the fruit. Let age 3-12 months before consuming.
I had some on the rocks with ginger ale. And some of the figs may make their way into a boozy fruitcake at some point.
