Happy Spring!!! ?

Strawberry Chamomile Paloma | @hbharvest

Funny enough it snowed all last week (and like A LOT), but yesterday was finally all sunshine. THANK GOD. I really needed to see the sun and it’s supposed to stay out today, too! YEAH!!

So, with today being the first official day of Spring I thought a fun spring cocktail was in order. One packed with fruity flavors, a little fizz and okok, maybe some tequila too…or if that’s not your thing, these can easily be made into mocktails too! Traditionally a Paloma is a tequila based cocktail mixed with grapefruit juice and topped with a little sparkling water. I took that idea and swapped in strawberries infused with a little chamomile honey tea. Perfect fresh and light flavors for spring, right? Plus, I bought a whole bunch of fresh chamomile flowers at Whole Foods. Not knowing this, the next day my mom bought me a whole bunch more. Clearly some pretty, spring, chamomile cocktails were needed.

I mean, obviously. Ok and I am slightly obsessed with edible flowers right now. 🙂

These Strawberry Chamomile Palomas are the perfect drinks to celebrate spring… and then Easter exactly one week later… oh, and Mother’s Day in May, plus everything in between! Hehe, I am so excited, such fun things happening! Oh and also, these drinks could not be easier to make. Just make a quick chamomile honey infused simple syrup, add some grapefruit juice, tequila and fresh strawberries to a glass, and muddle that up with all your might! Then just add ice and top off with sparkling water.

Chamomile Honey Syrup

For the Drinks

  • 3 ounces fresh grapefruit juice (about half of 1 grapefruit
  • 2-4 tablespoons chamomile honey syrup depending on your taste
  • 2 ounces tequila omit to make a virgin version
  • 4 fresh strawberries sliced
  • sparkling water for topping off
  • crushed ice


Chamomile Honey Syrup

  • Combine water and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a low boil, simmer 1 minute and remove from the heat. Add the tea bag, cover and steep for 5-10 minutes. Remove the tea bag and allow the syrup to cool completely. Store in the fridge.

For the Drinks

  • Add the grapefruit juice, chamomile syrup, tequila and strawberries to a glass. Use a muddler (or even the end of a rolling pin), gently push the strawberries down until they release their juices and are lightly smashed. Add a handful of ice and then add sparkling water to top off. Give the drink a gentle stir. Taste and add more chamomile syrup if desired. Garnish with fresh chamomile flowers and strawberries if desired <---DO THIS... Drink. 🙂


*If you'd prefer, you can strain out the mashed strawberries and then add fresh sliced strawberries for a prettier look.

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      Unfortunately, the calories took into account the entire batch of syrup. I always recommend that if the nutritional information is important to you, you use your own personal calculator. Ours is automatic and controlled by google. It’s not something we’d prefer to be using. We are required to. I’m sorry for the trouble, we do our best! Hope you enjoy the recipe! xT

    So delicious! Having a majority of non-drinkers in the family, we opted to set up a sweet little Paloma Bar with a glass pitcher of Paloma and a long swizzle stick, a bottle of tequila on the side, a shot glass, sprigs of fresh mint in a cup, and a bowl of roasted strawberries. Lots of ice and frosty glasses. So delicious! Great combination of flavors! What a beautiful Spring drink, Tieghan. Thank you!

    1. Hey Kym,
      Happy Easter!! 🐰🐣🌈 Thank you very much for giving this recipe a try and sharing your comment, I’m so glad it turned out well for you! xT

  2. Tieghan!! I am absolutely so excited to make these tomorrow for a dinner party in Italy! One question…..the chamomile honey syrup calls for 3/4 water. Does this mean 3/4 CUP of water? tablespoons? What measurement?

    Thanks for your help!!

    1. Hi Payton,
      Sorry for any confusion, yes it is 3/4 cup of water. I hope you love the recipe, cheers! xTieghan

  3. Hi! Do you use the entire batch of the camomile honey syrup in one drink? If not, how many ounces of syrup should go in each drink?

    1. Hi Kristin,
      The recipe calls for 2-4 tablespoons of the chamomile syrup. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

  4. Hi! How would you recommend converting this recipe to a pitcher full of drink? I’d love to make a big batch of it for an event I’m hosting. 🙂

    1. Hi Emily,
      Just increase the serving size and all of the ingredients will adjust for you. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love the recipe! xx
