Surprise your Senses with the Rum and Dried Fig Cocktail


On the Figs El Pajarero blog, we want to share with you an easy and delicious recipe for a rum and dried fig cocktail. This drink combines the sweet taste of dried figs with the acidity of the lemon and the intensity of the rum, creating a refreshing and exquisite experience to enjoy on any occasion. Come and try it!


You will see that among the ingredients, we mention fig liqueur. If you haven't prepared it yet, we invite you to do so. We have received many good comments about our recipe. Here you will find the complete recipe for this liqueur :)


Ingredients for two glasses of rum and dried fig cocktail


- 240 ml rum

- 120 ml fig liqueur (here is the recipe.)

- 60 ml lemon juice

- 8 dried figs, rehydrated and chopped

- Ice cubes

- Slice of lime or lemon for garnish (optional)




Start by rehydrating the dried figs by soaking them in water for at least 30 minutes. This will restore their juicy texture and make them easier to chop. Also, as El Pajarero dried figs are small, cutting them into three pieces will be enough.


2. Once rehydrated, chop the dried figs and place them in a bowl.


3. Add the rum, fig liqueur and lemon juice to a bowl with the chopped figs. Mix all the ingredients well until a homogeneous combination is obtained.


4. Fill a cocktail glass to the brim with ice.


5. Pour the rum, fig liqueur and lemon mixture over the ice.


6. If desired, garnish the cocktail with a slice of lime or lemon on the rim of the glass. This will add a fresh and visually appealing touch.


7. Gently shake the cocktail to mix the flavours and enjoy the aroma.


8. Now it's ready to sip! Sip slowly on this exquisite cocktail that combines the tropical flavours of rum and dried figs with the freshness of lime juice.


9. Oh, and the most important point, share it and enjoy it with company :)


This rum and dried fig cocktail is perfect to delight your guests at a special gathering or simply to enjoy on a relaxed evening. The combination of ingredients provides a unique balance of sweetness and acidity, creating an exceptional taste experience.


Remember that the dried figs used in this recipe are from Higos El Pajarero, known for their exceptional quality and flavour. Their juicy texture and natural sweetness are perfectly complemented by the rum and citrus juices.
