A mimosa is grand an all, but sometimes you want something with a little more oomph. The Orange Blossom does just that. Adding a bit of gin for bite and chamomile rosemary syrup, this low key drink works equally well for brunch as it does for evening cocktails. Plus, the little chamomile flowers are just too pretty.
1 ounce gin
1 ounce orange juice
1 tablespoon chamomile rosemary syrup
3 ounces prosecco
In a champagne coup, combine the gin, orange juice, and syrup. Top with prosecco.
INGREDIENTS (SIMPLE SYRUP)
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon crushed chamomile
1/2 cup white sugar
In a small pot, stir together the water, herbs, and sugar. Heat the mixture on medium for about 10 minutes, until the sugar dissolves and the liquid is clear. Take off the heat and set aside to steep for at least 30 minutes. Strain and use.
