Sea Salt & Fig Martini at Next Door, located next door to Pazza on Porter in Boston, Massachusetts.
New Year’s Day is all about starting the year fresh, and on the right foot. Why not mark the occasion with a celebratory brunch? Whether your brunch is sweet or savory, these cocktails will be the ideal accompaniment.
At Next Door, located next door to Pazza on Porter in Boston, Massachusetts, this cocktail is made with fig puree (easily made at home with dried figs, vanilla extract and water), lemon juice, Pear Brandy, Amaro, sea salt and garnished with shaved chocolate (you can grate your favorite chocolate bar right on top of the cocktail). “Figs symbolize knowledge, unity and understanding and salt is a symbol of profit, joy and happiness. With the festive sea salt & fig martini, our friends and family can toast to a new year filled with peace and prosperity and celebrate the year to come,” said mixologist Josue Castillo.
