Thyme Lemonade

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

For the thyme syrup:

A good handful of thyme

1 part sugar

1 part water

For the thyme lemonade:

1 part lemon juice

1 part thyme syrup

4-5 parts soda water

Ice cubes

Sprigs of thyme

 

Small saucepan

Large pitcher

15 mins
Serves 4

This is a wonderfully refreshing drink that is perfect for dinner parties! If you want to make an alcoholic version add one part good quality rum to the mix. The thyme syrup can be used for cocktails instead of a sugar syrup.

 

Place the thyme, sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a steady simmer, stirring to ensure that the sugar is completely dissolved.

TOP TIP

Allow the syrup to cool completely before using.
Fill a large pitcher with ice and pour in 1 part lemon juice, followed by 1 part thyme syrup and soda water. Garnish with thyme sprigs and swirls through. Serve straight away!

    Hiya Donal, Can you use mint instead of thyme, do you think it would be just as nice?
