I will try this recipe using a http://www.premiumwines.com I tried lately at my brother’s birthday party, the chamomile flower wine tastes great and I bet my spouse will love it. My uncle tried once to make such a recipe but the wine he used had a strange flavor and nobody liked it, he should have used a better wine bought from an on-line shop.
