The typical lavender season is June to August and it is one of my favorite herbs and flowers. To my surprise, the lavender in my backyard is still thriving in this winter weather, well with just one sprig standing, not enough to make a cocktail, though.
So when Teroforma reached out to me about their new 1pt infusion blends, the obvious choice is their floral blend: lavender, orange zest, and liquorice root with a balancing note of soothing chamomile.
1pt infusion kit comes with a high-durability lab glass infusion bottle with walnut-finish cap, a stainless steel infusion basket so it is mess free. What I love about it is that each blend has specific infusion time, which has always been tough because it requires sampling every few hours if you do your own infusion.
I decided to make a drink that reminds me of Hokkaido that I visited this summer, filled with beautiful lavender flowers. Summer has always been my favorite season because I am a solar powered person, and I can’t wait to go to South Hemisphere in a few weeks! I named the drink “Fuubutsushi” which is Japanese, it means things which remind of a season.
2 oz 1pt N°003 Floral lavender infused gin
3 oz pink grapefruit juice
0.5 oz elderflower liqueur
0.5 oz bianco vermouth
0.25 homemade grenadine
Half egg white
Add all ingredients, reverse dry shake, pour into a chilled collins glass filled with small ice cube. Garnish with grapefruit wedge and my lonely lavender sprig. If you like it, head over to Terofoma 1pt infusion website to grab the kit, enjoy the discount code for 10% off order of $50 or more with thetipsymuse10.
Have a great day.
