Continuing on the the herbal tea cocktail vibe we kicked off last week, this week I’ve mixed calming chamomile tea with crazy-inducing tequila and a dash of lime to create a super refreshing tequila sour. You’re going to have to make a simple sugar syrup for this, trust me, it’s easier than it sounds and worth the little effort. As the recipe below says, mix 2 parts sugar with 1 part water and bring to the boil, stir until the sugar has dissolved (less than 5 minutes) and take off the heat. It will thicken up nicely when it cools and can be kept in the fridge for up to a month, or six months if you add some vodka. By the way, if you’re not a fan of chamomile, you could replace it with another floral tea like lotus or jasmine but I suggest giving it a try in this devilish form. After all, what in life isn’t improved with a kick of tequila?
