My favorite cocktail garnishes are flowers. I love the spring and summer when my balcony garden is overflowing with botanical things to add to my drinks. I always try to have a variety of edible flowers in my urban garden from nasturtiums to marigolds to pansies, but in the winter I have to resort to finding edible flowers in the herb section of high-end groceries.
? Chamomile Martini ?
- 1.5 oz gin (or you can influse gin with chamomile for a few hours!)
- .75 oz chamomile tea
- .5 oz honey
- .75 oz grapefruit or pomelo juice
- Edible flower for garnish
Pour all ingredients into a shaker and shake hard. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a flower-- preferably chamomile but this little edible bud worked for me.
