For lime syrup
  1. Combine the sugar and the lime sugar, and stir until completely dissolved.
For fig syrup
  1. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat until dissolved. Add figs, stirring and mashing them as they cook until softened, about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Strain through a fine mesh strainer and place in the refrigerator to chill before using.
For the shave ice
  1. Add coconut ice cream to the bottom of a bowl. Top with heaping amounts of shaved ice. Pack/sculpt the ice firmly with your hands, then add more ice until you create a mound atop the bowl.
  2. Add fig syrup to one side of the ice, and lime syrup to the other. The amount of syrup you need will vary significantly depending on personal taste, and the size of your bowl. However, a good point of reference would be to drizzle the syrup so that the top of the ice is saturated.
  3. Top with a handful of toasted coconut, garnish with figs and limes, and serve with spoon and straw.
