Celebrate spring with this twist on the paloma cocktail. Here we use strawberry, honey and chamomile tea to make one refreshing drink!
For the chamomile honey syrup:
1/3 cup honey
1-2 chamomile tea bags
For the drink:
3 ounces fresh grapefruit juice (about 1/2 a grapefruit)
2-4 tablespoons chamomile honey syrup (add more if you want it sweeter)
4 fresh strawberries, sliced
2 ounces of tequila
sparkling water for topping off
For the chamomile honey syrup:
Combine water and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a low boil. Simmer for one minute and then remove from the heat.
Add the tea bag to the mix, cover and steep for 5-10 minutes. Remove the tea bag and place syrup in the fridge to cool.
For the drinks:
Pour tequila, grapefruit juice, chamomile syrup and strawberries into one glass. Use a muddler to gently muddle the strawberries.
Top off the glass with crushed ice and sparkling water.
