The sun is shining, the weather is sweet yeah!  At long last, we're finally seeing some decent weather in good old blighty. While there's still a little bit of a nip in the air, the scent of barbecues and beers is fresh in the air.  Nothing excites us Brits like a little bit of sun.

Fig margarita recipe, the perfect cocktail for your summer barbeques

As it's not quite Summer, and the weather can change at the snap of a finger I thought I'd stay clear of the typical sunshiney cocktail. These fig martinis are so delicious, the sweet but earthy element of the figs is just as perfect with grilled meat on the patio as it is pizza with the girls.

The figs are imparted into this recipe by ways of sugar syrup, make that part ahead (it keeps in the fridge for up to a week) so you can whip these beauties up at the drop of a hat.  Hostess with the mostess or what!  You just know people are gonna be talking about your mad cocktail skills for weeks.
