Learn how to make infused honey chamomile simple syrup for tea, cocktails, lemonade and more!
I made this honey chamomile simple syrup specifically for a batch of sun tea I made this past week. It was as delicious as it sounds! Making your own simple syrup is easy and cost-effective. As you know, honey is great for warm tea. As soon as you try to add it to a cold tea, it all just sits at the bottom.
Since my sun tea was full of delicious herbs and flowers, I thought a chamomile infused syrup would really hit the spot and take the drink to the next level. And I was right!

1. Add one cup of water and one cup of honey to a saucepan on medium high heat.
2. Allow the mixture to heat to boil, then immediately add the chamomile flowers and reduce the heat.
3. Let the mixture simmer for 10-20 minutes on medium-low heat, until it starts to become fragrant and thick.
This honey chamomile simple syrup can last up to two weeks in the fridge, as long as it’s sealed correctly. These jars shown in the pictures were simply for looks. I ended up using a tiny pickle jar instead, since I didn’t have any bottles.
Most simple syrup recipes call for sugar, but honey is better in my opinion. There are so many different ways to make this, my head is spinning! You can bet I’ll be infusing all kinds of different herbs in my simple syrups from now on.
