Lime-y Thyme-y Gin Gimlet


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:

Lime-y Thyme-y Gin Gimlet

  • 1.25 oz Bombay Sapphire Gin
  • 1 oz Fresh squeezed Lime Juice
  • 1 oz. Thyme Syrup
  • 1 thinly sliced lime and a sprig of fresh thyme

    Thyme simple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

    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.
