Ingredients for 64

  • **For the Floral Tincture**

  • 500ml (2 cups) vodka

  • 30g (1 ¾ cups) dried rose petals

  • 20g (1 cup) dried lavender

  • **For the Martini**

  • 2 fluid ounces London Dry gin

  • ½ fluid ounce dry vermouth

  • ¼ fluid ounce Floral Tincture (above)

  • Olive, for garnish


  • Step 1

    Start the tincture: Attach an Anova Precision Cooker to a vessel of water and heat to 135°F (57°C).

  • Step 2

    Combine the vodka, rose petals, and lavender in a chamber vacuum pouch. Seal using the strong vacuum and strong seal. Transfer to the water bath and cook for 24 hours.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 0

      Remove from the water bath. Let cool to room temperature, then strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a large mason jar. Freeze overnight.

    • Step 1

      The next day, chill-filter the tincture by lining a strainer or funnel with a coffee filter and cheesecloth and placing over a second mason jar (or similar-sized wide container if using a bottom drawer-style freezer). Pour the tincture through the strainer, then return to the freezer to finish straining.

    • Step 2

      To make the martini, combine the gin, vermouth, and tincture in a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir until the outside of the mixing glass is cold to the touch, about 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and serve immediately.
