  • Author: carmeninthegarden


Enjoy garden freshness in my ‘Strawberry Chamomile Cloud’ cocktail! 🍓🌼 Featuring strawberries, chamomile, gin, Saint Germain & lemon.


  • 2 oz Gin
  • 1 oz Saint Germain (Elderflower liqueur)
  • 1 oz Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz Chamomile Simple Syrup (recipes follow)
  • 2 Fresh strawberries
  • 1 Egg white
  • Dried chamomile flowers or fresh chamomile flowers for garnish
  • Strawberry slice for garnish

Chamomile Simple Syrup with Dried Chamomile Flowers:

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Dried chamomile flowers or 23 chamomile tea bags


Chamomile Simple Syrup Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and water.
  2. Heat over medium heat until the sugar dissolves completely.
  3. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the dried chamomile flowers or the chamomile tea bags and remove from heat.
  4. Let the mixture steep for at least 30 minutes, or up to several hours for a stronger chamomile flavor.
  5. Strain the syrup into a jar, pressing the flowers or tea bags to extract all the flavors. Dispose of the used flowers or tea bags.
  6. Store the syrup in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

Cocktail Directions:

  1. Muddle the strawberries in the bottom of a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add the gin, Saint Germain, lemon juice, chamomile simple syrup, and egg white.
  3. Dry shake (without ice) vigorously for about 10-15 seconds to emulsify the egg white.
  4. Add ice and shake again until well-chilled.
  5. Double strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass.
  6. Garnish with a strawberry slice and chamomile flowers. Enjoy!
