Fig Bee's Knees

Autumnal cocktail to warm you just when it started getting cool.
1 12 oz Gin, Bluecoat
1 oz Honey syrup (Fig infused, see note)
12 oz Lime juice
2 ds Bitters, Fee Brothers Black Walnut
Shake with ice. Strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
Cook fresh figs with 1 cup water and 1 cup honey. Simmer & remove from heat as soon as boiling begins. Push through strainer and refrigerate.
Renamed from Fig Martini, since it isn't, well, a Martini. It resembles a Bee's Knees, but with fig and lime in lieu of lemon.

Sounds very good, and a

Sounds very good, and a reason to finally get some Fee Black Walnut Bitters. Republished as a Fig Bee's Knees, since it is not a Martini-style cocktail. The original poster is welcome to rename it so long as the name conforms to any well-established drinks referenced in the name.
