Chamomile German (Matricaria recutita)

Description

Feathery foliage is fragrant with overtones of pineapple. Daisy-like flower heads can be used, fresh or dried, to lend aromatic floral notes to infusions and liqueurs. Plant in full sun. Annual. Grows 24-30″ tall.

Southern Belle Whiskey Garden:

Whiskey may come from grains — barley, corn, wheat and rye are distillers’ favorites—but mixologists know a good whiskey cocktail calls for more than just grains. We’ve put together an unusual and inventive collection of herbs to complement your Southern hospitality. Mint Julep? You’ve got to grow Kentucky Colonel mint, the classic Southern mint. Hot Toddy? Try it with chamomile-honey syrup. Mix whiskey with our herbs, along with fresh summer fruit, for a new twist on an Old-Fashioned.

Chamomile Hot Toddy: Fill a heatproof glass with hot water, then pour out. Add 1.5 ounces of your favorite whiskey, 1 ounce of honey-chamomile syrup (equal parts honey and hot water, add chamomile, steep 30 minutes), top with hot water. Press cloves into the rind of a lemon wedge and add.
