    It is time to infuse some whiskey with fig and create this unique, very impressive cocktail. The fig is a natural aphrodisiac, and we all know about the effects of alcohol, so the Marriage of Figaro really is a winner when it comes to sparking romance. Beyond the fig-infused bourbon, the drink requires straight bourbon, Cardamaro, and allspice dram and the end result is simply lovely.
