Using Chamomile Simple Syrup in Cocktails

Just use it in place of simple syrup wherever subtle floral notes are desired. We’ve had great results with a variety of spirits, including:

  • Bourbon
  • Brandy
  • Tequila
  • Gin
  • Pisco

Chamomile simple also pairs well with a variety of fruits, such as citrus fruits, green apple, pear, berries. For a tasty example, checkout our Paloma Cocktail — a lightly floral, fruit-forward twist on a classic. Chamomile simple would also work nicely in a sour or an aquafaba-based gin flip.

Note: If you’re using simple syrup in place of agave in a recipe, such as a margarita, don’t forget to double the amount! Agave is much sweeter than simple syrup.
