Chamomile Strawberry Gin Daisy Cocktail
The perfect warm weather cocktail, this pretty-in-pink libation is fresh and perfectly tangy and sweet. It celebrates everything you love about the spring in one glass, and tastes great all summer, too.
- Serves: 1 person
- 1fresh strawberry, plus more slices for garnish
- 2ounces gin
- 1tablespoon Chamomile Simple Syrup, plus more to taste
- ¼cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more to taste
- ¼teaspoon grenadine
- 1organic edible flower, for garnish (optional)
Step 1Place the strawberry in a cocktail shaker. Using a muddler, smash the strawberry into a purée. (If you don’t have a muddler, you can use a small bowl and the tines of a fork or the handle of a wooden spoon to smash the berry before adding it to the cocktail shaker.)
Step 2Add the gin, chamomile simple syrup, lemon juice, grenadine and a handful of ice to the shaker. Shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. Add more chamomile simple syrup and lemon to taste.
Step 3Strain into a large (8- to 10-ounce) glass or cup. (If you prefer, you can serve over ice as well.) Garnish with strawberry slices or an edible flower, if desired.
