Notes from Michael LaPenna, Mixologist at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas:

 

“I wanted let the chamomile shine. I didn’t want to mask the delicate blend with dominant flavors. So I infused the cachaça with chamomile for ten days, allowing the taste to come out. Pairing the infusion with sage honey tied it all together.”

“I didn’t want to mask the delicate blend with dominant flavors.”
