Spiced Fig Cocktail

We took one of summer’s best cocktails and turned it into a fall-inspired margarita. First, we make a cheater’s simple syrup by melting together fig jam, cinnamon, and water. Then, we shake it up with fresh lemon juice and tequila. Lastly, we coat the rim of the glass with cinnamon sugar for a sweet and spiced finish.
