Total time: 5 minutes

Note: From Alex Day of Proprietors. For the camomile-infused Calvados, add 3 tablespoons loose-leaf camomile tea to 6 ounces Calvados and let it sit at room temperature for 25 to 30 minutes (taste to make sure it doesn't over-steep); strain and discard the tea. To make simple syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar in a saucepan and heat until the sugar dissolves; cool before using.

1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

1/4 ounce yellow Chartreuse

1/4 ounce simple syrup

Dry sparkling wine

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the camomile-infused Calvados, lemon juice, Chartreuse and simple syrup; shake and strain into a chilled flute. Top with dry sparkling wine.
