Alain's Bellevue Hotel
Recipe type: Cocktail
Serves: 1 cocktail
  • 1 ounce Broker's gin
  • 1 teaspoon nut tea, I used David's Tea Forever Nuts
  • 2 ounces Lillet
  • ¼ ounce Cointreau
  • ½ lemon, squeezed for juice
  • ¼ ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce fig puree
  • ice
  1. Pour the gin into a cup and ut the tea in a mesh ball infuser and let steep. Add ice to martini shaker. Once the gin is infused, pour all ingredients into the martini shaker. Shake well and then strain. Enjoy!
I couldn't find fig puree, so I made my own with Trophy dried soft smyrna figs. Chop the figs and add them to a pot with water. Bring it to a boil and cook until figs are very soft. Let cool. Puree with hand blender or magic bullet (make sure that the mixture is not hot). Add lemon juice to thin down if necessary.

You don't need to make your own simple syrup. Starbucks sells it as Classic Syrup as do other brand that sell coffee syrups.
