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