3/4 oz Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
1/4 oz Avèze Gentian Liqueur (Salers)
Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe spritzed with orange blossom water. Garnish with lemon oil from a twist.
Two Wednesdays ago, I reached for Sasha Petraske: Regarding Cocktails and was curious about the Savoir Faire. The recipe was crafted by Lauren McLaughlin of Milk & Honey, and Sasha's wife Georgette loved floral cocktails such as this one. The book's recipe incorrectly listed the dry vermouth as 1/4 oz, and Lauren was kind enough to write me on Instagram to alert me that the correct amount was 3/4 oz to match their Martini spec. My tasting notes were unfortunately for the lesser amount of dry vermouth though.
