Thyme Lemonade

I finally admitted to myself that my thyme was dying. I cut off what was fresh and wondered what I should do. A brand new handle of Tito’s vodka whispered to me, “Thyme Lemonade.” Yes, Tito. Yes.

Ingredients

  • 5 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 4-6 Lemons
  • 2 quarts of water

Steps

  1. Combine one cup of water and one cup of sugar together in a medium sized saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat while continuously stirring.
  2. When sugar has dissolved, turn heat off. Add thyme to the pot, and allow to sit for at least 10 minutes. If you want a stronger thyme flavor, let it settle in there for an hour. When thyme flavor achieved, strain the thyme simple syrup.
  3. Combine the juice of the lemons, the syrup and the water in a pitcher. Drink as is or throw in some vodka or gin. Yum!
