Happy New Year! Sorry my absence has been so long. I’ll tell you more about it sometime soon. I hope everyone has been enjoying the holidays with family and friends.
If you are in recovery from holiday indulgence, this is a simple and relaxing liqueur that could be enjoyed a number of ways.
1/8 oz. dried Chamomile flowers or tea (about 3 Tablespoons)
1 c. Vodka
2 large strips of lemon zest
2 Tablespoons Honey
Add all ingredients together in a pint jar (or larger if you are multiplying the batch). Close the jar tightly and shake well. Allow to infuse for about 3-4 weeks. Strain and filter, and enjoy!

Ooh, I love this one, AND it’s sweetened with honey! Happiness!

Thanks Lauren, I bet you would come up with a fabulous cocktail with this one!

Sounds lovely! And it has honey, so it has to be sublime!!

Thanks Deb! I should have known you wouldn’t miss anything with honey!

Alicia, would you drink this straight up, or are there thoughts on mixing it with something?
January 5, 2013 at 2:01 pm
Hi Kenley, this is lovely on its own, but would also make a great cocktail. Perhaps with some gin and fresh lemon, it could be a chamomile Bees Knees, or probably would be good in many other concoctions. Cheers~

I’m not a fan of chamomile, but I have to say it looks very pretty, especially in that lovely decanter!

Thank you! You could sub another herbal tea if you like…

January 5, 2013 at 2:03 pm

Thanks for posting this. We used to be able to get it at a place in Northern Cal that imported it from Chile. They closed up shop and I haven’t had in 12 years. Best after dinner drink if you have a heavy meal.

Hi Mike, I hope this is similar to the liqueur that you remember… If not,maybe you can play around with the recipe a bit. Maybe add sugar instead of honey, and more or less lemon. Good luck!

Hey, thank you for the recipe. I do pop-up dinners in portland OR and I am making some cocktails to pair with our 5 course dinner coming up very soon. There is a bar around here that does a cocktail called baba yaga and it is made with chamomile vodka, liquore strega, and lemon. It is divine! We plan on adding your recipe for this liquore into our own version of this thing. Cheers
