In the context of cocktails, a tincture is another type of flavorful extract made by preserving spices, herbs and even some produce such as hot peppers in 80% or higher alcohol. Pour the spirit over the selected herb or spice in an airtight container. Keep the container in a dark place at room temperature and shake it once a day. Taste it after about one week and see if it is strong enough. Once at the strength you desire, strain and store indefinitely in a dark cabinet.
