Here is a recipe for a Lemon Thyme Refresher that is the perfect combination of sweet and herbaceous.
Lemon Thyme Refresher
Lemon Thyme simple syrup
Tito’s vodka (or any vodka of your choice)
Step One: Simple Syrup
Simple Syrup Ingredients:
1 cup white sugar
1 cup Water
7 sprigs of lemon thyme
In a medium saucepan combine white sugar, water, and lemon thyme. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool completely.
The lemon thyme becomes infused into the simple syrup. Lemon Thyme can be found at most grocery stores or produce markets.
Step Two: Strawberry Puree
Strawberry Puree Ingredients:
8 ounces frozen strawberries
2 cups Water
1 cup Lemon Thyme simple syrup (remove lemon thyme sprigs from mixture before blending)
6 ounces of vodka
Blend frozen strawberries, water, vodka and lemon thyme simple syrup until smooth. If you aren't feeling boozy, ditch the vodka!
Pour over ice, top off with a little soda water, and garnish with sprig of fresh lemon thyme.
Recipe yields: 5 8oz. Serving
