Chamomile flowers perfume this refreshing cocktail.

The bar team at Julep commonly taps regional and historic ingredients to make the house drinks. In this refreshing chamomile cocktail, the flowers bring a floral depth to the mix. And did you know chamomile was once used as a southern remedy for snake bites? That’s inspired the drink’s name.
