Gin Thyme Lemon

Herbs are the perfect compliment to gin.  Gin is distilled with the infusion of herbs, mostly the juniper berry.  Combine equal parts honey and water with thyme and simmer for five minutes to create the honey-thyme simple syrup. The results here are a drink with a fresh balance of herbs and citrus flavors.

1 oz Honey-Thyme Simple Syrup

2-3 Thyme Sprigs

Fill a glass with crushed ice, mix equal parts gin and lemon juice. Add half as much honey-thyme simple syrup. Add a few sprigs of thyme to garnish the glass and enjoy.
