Cruella’s Fig Martini

Cruella the Dog Snatcher is our dear friend who always has a dog in tow, and not necessarily her own! On one particular visit to Diva #1’s Vortex (aka apartment) she arrived with a box of fresh, purple Greek figs and requested that Diva #1 whip up a cocktail. Always up for a challenge, Cruella’s Fig Martini was created, and it’s fabulous.

And since cocktail-ing goes swimmingly with snacks, we whole heartedly recommend a side of Les Gamins Gourmands’ sweet popcorn. Our favourite flavour and perfect with this cocktail is their Chocolat Blanc & Noix de Coco popcorn, it isn’t too sweet and it works well with Cruella’s Fig Martini.
