Cabin Cooking: Chamomile Liqueur

The next thing I made with my one 750 ml bottle of vodka was chamomile liqueur. I grow chamomile for tea and when I saw a recipe for using the flowers to make a liqueur at Boozed + Infused, I had to try. Chamomile has such wonderful flavour, it must make a great after dinner sipping drink.

Chamomile Liqueur

Ingredients:

1 pint sized jar
3 tablespoons of chamomile flowers
1 cup vodka
2 tablespoons honey or corn syrup

Directions:

Put ingredients together in a pint jar. Close the lid and shake well.

The recipe I saw online said to put the flowers directly into the vodka, but I put mine into tea bags to contain some of the small seeds.

Store in a cool, dark, dry place for 3-4 weeks. Shake 2-3 times a week to mix the flavours.

When the liqueur is ready, strain out the chamomile flowers and seeds using cheesecloth.

If you like the flavour, you can make larger batches by multiplying the ingredients.

Now it’s time to enjoy your concoction straight or over ice. -- Margy
