Early Summer Cocktail

STRAWBERRY CHAMOMILE PALOMAS

Summer in a glass and all it’s perfection. Packed with fruity flavors and a little fizz, these Strawberry Chamomile Palomas could not be easier to make.

Ingredients:

CHAMOMILE HONEY SYRUP

3/4 water
1/3 cup honey
1-2 chamomile tea bags

THE DRINK

3 oz. Fresh grapefruit juice (about half of 1 grapefruit)
2-4 Tablespoons chamomile honey syrup depending on your taste
2 oz.  Tequila
4 Fresh strawberries sliced
Sparkling water for topping off
Crushed ice

 

Directions:

CHAMOMILE HONEY SYRUP

Combine water and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a low boil, simmer 1 minute and remove from the heat. Add the tea bag, cover and steep for 5-10 minutes. Remove the tea bag and allow the syrup to cool completely. Store in the fridge.

FOR THE DRINK

Add the grapefruit juice, chamomile syrup, tequila and strawberries to a glass. Use a muddler (or even the end of a rolling pin), gently push the strawberries down until they release their juices and are lightly smashed. Add a handful of ice and then add sparkling water to top off. Give the drink a gentle stir. Taste and add more chamomile syrup if desired. Garnish with fresh chamomile flowers and strawberries if desired.

Serves 1

Now, slip off those work shoes, lay back on that lounge chair and soak up the Summer and this delicious drink!
