This week marks the final week of 2013’s National Bourbon Heritage Month. This week is also Orange is the New Black Week here on BTR, so I thought I’d combine the two while also celebrating the arrival of fall for Thirsty Thursday.

What you’ll need:
1 1/2 oz bourbon
1 fig
1 orange
1/2 tsp clover honey

Slice the fig in 4 pieces and place it at the bottom of your glass. Add in the honey and muddle. Juice all of the orange into the glass except for 1 slice. Pour in the bourbon and stir. Garnish with the remaining orange slice.

This cocktail is a little bit sweeter than most posted on Thirsty Thursday, so I’d suggest drinking this as an after dinner cocktail rather than with dinner.
