Renowned for their soothing properties, chamomile flowers have been used in tinctures and teas throughout Europe for centuries. When we found ourselves with a surplus after testing the chamomile gelato recipe in "This Garden-Driven Cook is Shaking Things Up In Southern Italy", we sought out new ways to utilize their comforting flavor. When infused in grappa, the high-ABV Italian spirit, chamomile's gentle aromatics are great for a shaken sour with a fluffy egg white foam, or used as a replacement for gin, mixed with tonic.
