Notes

  1. Bourbon - You can use any bourbon that you enjoy in this cocktail. I don't recommend using expensive bourbons since those are really made for sipping or spirit-forward cocktails like Manhattan's. 
  2. If you want to make these cocktails in advance, you can muddle the figs with the bourbon, lime juice, and honey a few hours ahead of time. Then divide the mixture evenly among 4 rocks glasses, add ice and top with sparkling water, garnish and serve.
