Lemon, Ginger & Thyme Vodka Cocktail
Have this brisk and flavorful syrup at-the-ready for entertaining. Lemon, thyme, and ginger —three distinct flavors that mix surprisingly well together. Serve chilled or as a hot toddy.
- Lemon juice
- Ice Cubes
- ½ cup honey
- ½ cup water
- 3" piece ginger, sliced thin
- 10 thyme sprigs
- To make syrup place honey, water, ginger, and thyme in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes. Let cool for 20–25 minutes and strain. Add enough water to replace water that evaporated during simmering to bring syrup to 1 cup.
FOR A CHILLED DRINK:
In a cocktail glass, fill with ice, add 1½ ounces vodka, 1 ounce syrup, and 1 ounce lemon juice then stir.
If making a large batch of drinks, you can mix 1 cup syrup, 1 cup lemon juice, and 1½ cups vodka.
FOR A HOT TODDY-STYLE DRINK:
Warm syrup. In a mug, add 2 ounces vodka, 1½ ounces syrup, 1½ ounces lemon juice, and hot water to taste.
