imbibe [thyme simple syurp in two cocktails]


Remember the thyme simple syrup I wanted to make last week? It turned out quite well, and I've used it in two different recipes to give it a real working over. We've got something for everyone, both gin and dark rum. With gin it's a bit like the classic bees knees, and with dark rum it gets a limey apple kick. 

For the Thyme Simple Syrup: boil 1 C water with 1 C sugar. Add 15 sprigs of thyme, about half of a package that you get at the supermarket, and reduce to simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely. Strain syrup into sealable jar.

Make the sugared thyme by tossing the freshly strained thyme with sugar and allowing to dry.
