The Official Among Thieves Cocktail
1.5 oz bourbon or gin (optional)
2.5 oz chamomile tea
1 oz simple syrup
0.5 oz fresh lemon juice
6 fresh blackberries, rinsed
Lemon peel garnish
Make a cup of chamomile tea and allow it to steep as it gradually reaches room temperature. Once the syrup and tea are ready, add both to a shaker with a large cube or hunk of ice, along with the lemon juice and blackberries. Agitate vigorously for 10-20 seconds, until the ice begins to break up. Strain into a rocks glass, allowing only a small portion of the blackberry bits to pass through. Garnish with a slice of lemon peel: remove the strip with a peeler or a sharp knife, then twist it over the glass and run the peel along the rim before dropping it into the drink.
