Tequila Tranquilo: The Recipe
Chamomile Jalapeno Simple Syrup
Heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a pot and stir until dissolved.
Add 2 tablespoons chamomile flower tea, and one chopped jalapeno.
Simmer (small bubbles) for 20 minutes. Strain and cool.
Build the Cocktail
Using your favourite cocktail shaker, measure:
1.5 oz Tequila (we like Reposado, but any fine tequila will work)
1 oz Chamomile Jalapeno Simple Syrup
.75 oz Freshly squeezed lemon juice
Shake with ice, serve ‘on the rocks’ or strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with a few chamomile flower heads (fresh or dried) or fresh cut lime wedges. Enjoy!
Non – Alcoholic Option
Omit tequila, double the amount of simple syrup and lemon juice, top with soda, and serve in a tall glass with a citrus garnish.
