This is my favorite cocktail to make with nonalcoholic ingredients. “Fat-washing” with a premium olive oil gives it a silky texture and mouthfeel.
For the olive oil-washed nonalcoholic spirit:1.
In a large jar or container, combine the Seedlip Garden 108 and olive oil. Shake vigorously to combine, then set aside at room temperature to infuse for 12 hours.2.
After infusing, transfer the jar to the freezer for another 12 hours or overnight. The olive oil will solidify and separate.3.
Line a fine-mesh strainer with a coffee filter, milk bag or paper towel. Place over a second container, strain the Seedlip, discarding the solids.4.
Repeat the process as necessary to remove any remaining oil. Keep refrigerated and use within 6 months.
For the dirty martini:1.
Add all of the ingredients to a mixing glass and add ice.2.
Stir until well-chilled and strain into a small martini glass.3.
Garnish with a lemon twist expressed over the drink.
