Fig & Melon Martini…

Have you ever heard of a Fig & Melon Martini? Me neither…so I surfed the web looking for something creative to stir up as a wicked potion and here it is. Yes, I know I’m stretching with the ingredients on this, but figs are in such abundance in my backyard and I’m always looking for new ways to use them. I know not everyone loves figs, but I do…and maybe you would too if you got to drink them.

Can you feel fall approaching? It’s time to start transitioning from summer to fall and I can’t think of a better way than a festive cocktail. This Fig & Melon Martini perfectly blends the taste of sweet and tart and is oh so refreshing.  If you’re open to trying something new, then give this cocktail a try — it’s simple to make and you won’t be disappointed.  Here’s my wicked potion creation of a Fig & Melon Martini!

Thank God It’s Friday!
