chamomile mocktail

The inspiration for this recipe came from dried chamomile flowers.

Kelley Swenson says his inspiration for this mocktail recipe came from using dried chamomile flowers (from chamomile tea) as a garnish, which reminded him of sun-dried hay.

  • ¾ oz. chamomile tea, cooled
  • ½ oz. rich simple syrup (2:1)
  • ½ oz. fresh lemon juice
  • Tools:muddler, shaker, strainer, fine strainer
  • Glass:rocks
  • Garnish:chamomile flowers (dried or fresh) or small melon ball


Fill a shaker with melon and ice. Muddle through the ice, breaking up the melon into  bits. Add the tea, syrup and lemon. Shake vigorously. Fine-strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish.
