Figuette is an chilled fruit tisane made with a base of dried figs. Traditionally figuette is made with figs and juniper berries, but in this recipe we’ve decided to experiment with other flavors.
Calimyrna figs make this figuette a lot lighter in color and flavor than mission fig figuette recipes. Dried tart cherries give the drink’s golden color an added ruby hue while also imparting a strong cherry flavor. Ceylon cinnamon is a more mild alternative to the cassia cinnamon you find in most grocery stores, adding a savory rather than hot note.
- 1 qt Water
- 15 Dried Calimyrna Figs
- 8 Dried Tart Cherries
- 1 four-inch Ceylon Cinnamon stick
- (you could substitute conventional cinnamon (cassia), but the drink may be spicier)
