Tasting Notes

Ancient Lullabye

The name Ancient Lullabye is inspired by the use of Ancient Age Bourbon paired with lavender and chamomile, which are known to promote restful sleep. This drink is a light and refreshing after dinner cocktail, not overly sweet. Chamomile also promotes healthy digestion, making this mixture a perfect choice after a rich and heavy meal.

To make:
1.5 oz prepared chamomile and lavender tea with honey (recipe below)
1.5 oz. Ancient Age Bourbon
0.5 oz. Limoncello
0.5 oz. lemon juice
5 dashes Black Walnut Bitters

Shake for a minute or two until frothy, and strain into a whiskey stem. Garnish with lavender flower, if available, or lemon peel.

Recipe for chamomile and lavender tea mixture:
2 teaspoons dried chamomile flowers
2 teaspoons dried lavender flowers
12 oz. hot water (use a mason jar to measure)
2 oz. honey

Let the tea steep in hot water for 5 minutes. Strain and stir in honey to dissolve. Keep chilled and label with date made.
