  • 2 1/2 cups (1 pound) chopped pitted figs
  • 2 cups vodka (high proof is best)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar syrup


  1. If the fruit you have is dried, you must first reconstitute it. Put a cup or so of water into a sauce pan. Boil water, add dried fruits. Cover, turn off heat and let fruits plump in hot water for about 5 minutes. Drain off water.
  2. Cut fruit into smaller pieces with scissors or a sharp knife. Place cooled fruit in vodka for 2 weeks, shaking occasionally. Strain and filter. Add sugar syrup to taste.
  3. The fruits are naturally very sweet, so be very sparing with your syrup.
