It’s true. It is September, it’s supposed to be fall-ish, but truth be told it’s still hot and muggy in the south. I thought this would be a great last hurrah cocktail before we start changing out our wardrobes. Without further adieu, my Lime-y Thyme-y Gimlet:
Thyme simple syrup
Put all ingredients in a small pot , simmer for 10 minutes let cool.
The syrup can be stored in a jar for up to 2 weeks.
Pour the gin, lime juice, and thyme syrup into a mixing glass half-filled with ice cubes. Stir well.
Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass and garnish with the lime slice and fresh thyme sprig.
