This is our 100th post! So we’ll celebrate tonight with a tasty cocktail…
Here is one that will infuse quickly and be sure to soothe… chamomile
1/8 oz. (about 3 TB) dried Chamomile Flowers
1 c. bourbon
Infuse for about 5 days, then strain the flowers and filter through a coffee filter. If you can’t find dried chamomile flowers, simply substitute some chamomile tea.
As you may have noted, we have more than one infusion going with these flowers, and we will be sure to share the other with you soon.
In the meantime, you can enjoy some delicious cocktails with your infused bourbon…
2 oz. Chamomile Bourbon
3/4 oz. Sweet Vermouth
Dash of Angostura Bitters
Brandied Cherry (or other cocktail cherry)
Stir all ingredients except the Cherry over ice, strain into a chilled glass and garnish with the Brandied Cherry.
The chamomile flavor is lovely, and not overwhelming. The bourbon is still the star, but has a wonderful lingering chamomile taste.
Be sure to try this!
