With the upcoming Vernal Equinox in mind, we concocted this Spring-in-a-glass cocktail as an ode to the coming season. Chamomile tea and elderflower liqueur lend their delicately aromatic flavors to this Mab Tab infused botanical beverage. Topped with sparkling wine, the result is a delightfully effervescent and floral refreshment. While the weather may still be chilly, we plan to enjoy this Spritz outdoors with a cheers to springtime and the promise of warmer weather ahead!
Ingredients for two cocktails:
4 oz strongly brewed organic chamomile tea
*8 oz dry sparkling wine
*1 oz elderflower liqueur
1 Mab Tab
Fresh organic chamomile for garnish
*For a Mocktail use Lemon seltzer in place of sparkling wine and elderflower syrup in place of liqueur.
Boil water for chamomile tea. Pour 4 oz over two tea bags or 3 teaspoons of loose tea. Steep for 10-15 minutes.
Strain or remove tea bags and drop in the Mab Tab to dissolve. Let cool then pour into shaker or lidded jar over ice with 1 oz elderflower liqueur. Shake well to combine and chill.
Pour mixture evenly into two glasses. Top with sparkling wine and Garnish with fresh chamomile.
