Cinnamon-Cherry Figuette

Makes 1 Quart

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)



In a large jar combine the water, figs, dried cherries and ceylon cinnamon.

Close the jar and steep the mixture in your refrigerator for one week.

Strain out and discard the figs, cherries, and cinnamon stick, then transfer the liquid to a bottle that shows off its color. Close the bottle and let the figuette rest in your refrigerator for an additional 4-5 days so the flavor can mature.

Serve chilled in small clear glasses.
