Chamomile hot toddy

This is wonderful warm drink great for fall and cold night. It is wonderful just before bed. To help the body unwind and relax. I found this recipe here


  • 1 1/2 oz bourbon
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz chamomile honey syrup
  • 4 oz hot water
  • lemon wedge and chamomile flowers for garnish

Chamomile Honey Syrup:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/8 cup hot water
  • 1 tablespoon dried chamomile

How to make the chamomile honey syrup. 
Combine hot water with honey and stir until evenly mixed. Add chamomile, stirring to combine. Let cool, approximately 30 minutes, then pour through a fine mesh strainer to remove chamomile.

To make the cocktail:
Add the bourbon, lemon juice, and chamomile honey syrup to a heat-resistent glass or mug.Top with the hot water and stir so that all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. For an added chamomile kick, substitute the hot water with hot chamomile tea.Garnish with a half-wheel of lemon and a few chamomile flowers.

This drink can be easily customized. For a sweeter drink add a bit more honey syrup. More tart, add some more lemon. A bit stronger, add a bit more bourbon. Here is to a warm night. 
Have a berry orange day,
