On a midweek night, Ronald Flores is running around Art and Soul Restaurant’s packed Art Bar serving up artisan drinks for a thirsty post-work crowd. As Art Bar’s mixologist, Flores has been a fan favorite and critic’s choice winner at Corcoran Gallery of Art’s ARTINI event for two years in a row. It’s no surprise. Flores has a knack for crafting unique and artistic cocktails, with tinctures and syrups only his imaginative mixology mind could concoct.
Figs are known to be sexy fruits and often thought to have psychoactive properties. The ancient Greeks associated figs with love and fertility. Of course, everyone knows these aphrodisiac elements can make cocktail mixing extra fun.
Flores’ fig and whiskey cocktail is sure to satisfy two very different palates. Not too sweet and not too bitter, the finish is smooth and warming. Allspice Dram complements smooth white whiskey, and a dash of lemon and ginger marries it all together.
