For those of us who like a classic cocktail but aren't afraid to shake it up a little, I present to you WINK! Weddings' fig manhattan. All the goodness of the traditional manhattan, with a delicious twist. Fig and thyme and bourbon are shaken up and the results are wow-worthy. With photos from onelove photography, you can peek at this cocktail in action over here (excuse me while I swoon over all of the pretty).
