Cha-cha-cha-chamomile Cocktail

Chamomile is a wonderful flower that has wonderful calming abilities.  It is naturally sweet smelling and tasting.  Adding it to a cocktail takes it to a new level.  The sweet, slightly apple flavor is intensified by using a strong tisane, lemon juice adds brightness, the gin adds a pleasant piney flavor and honey adds a touch of sweetness.  We loved this cocktail and will definitely be making more of it.
