On Monday, I showed you some Lavender Infused Gin. Today, I’m sharing my second infused alcohol for Lavender Week! This one involves just a smidgen more work than then lavender infused gin, but it’s so worth it.
Vermouth de Provence is basically vermouth infused with Herbes de Provence. Herbes de Provence is one of my favorite herb blends. It’s made up of a variety of herbs typical of Provence. If you search on the web, you’ll find different recipes for it. The one thing they all agree on is that for the American market – it includes lavender. Which means it qualifies for Lavender Week!
Vermouth de Provence
(recipe found at Chow)
- 1 (750-milliliter) bottle of dry Vermouth
- 2 1/4 teaspoons Herbes de Provence
Combine 3/4 cup vermouth and herbs in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
Simmer for 5 minutes, remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Strain to remove herbs and pour infusion back into vermouth bottle.
So, now you have two lovely bottles of lavender infused alcohol. Come back tomorrow and see what to do with them!
