Take Thyme

by Thyme Recipes 1 Nov 19

Our signature cocktail is deliciously balanced, with a clean palette that makes it the perfect aperitivo.  We make a simple syrup of lemon thyme, an upright form of the herb, with gold and silver variegated foliage and a strong lemon scent; if you can only find common thyme, add the juice of a lemon to the syrup mix.  We have chosen Sapling Vodka for our favourite cocktail, produced in the heart of London, distilled from 100% British wheat, and for every bottle they produce, they plant a tree, from fruit trees in London to Hazelnut trees in Suffolk, an ethos we love at Thyme.
