Chamomile Tequila Sour

Chamomile Tequila Sour

I wonder if this cocktail is the quintessential nightcap? I mean isn’t Chamomile tea known as the “night time” tea?  Don’t worry, though, you won’t fall asleep with the glass in your hand.   I’ve taste tested a few – you know, just to be sure the recipe is accurate and I have to say I have not yet dozed off . . . not yet, being the operative words!  I think there is something in the Chamomile tea that is somewhat addicting as I find I crave this cocktail.

A tool to help you with your home bartending skills is the cocktail strainer.  To the right is one that I recommend, Swissmar Stainless Steel Cocktail Strainer.  Every home should have one!

So, if you’ve been feeling anxious, stressed, or depressed, you may find soothing relief in this delightful cocktail. The flavor is quite unique. Let me know what you think after you’ve tried it!

Live it up and drink it down!
