Aye, aye! It’s Thirsty Thursday & how convenient it’s FIVE o’clock here! This Thursday we were feeling ultra festive for our drink of the week so prepare yourselves because this one is not for the faint of heart! Thanks to Anthro Blog we got this new recipe and drink to try!
Say hello to the THYME GREYHOUND!
For the thyme simple syrup (yes, you have to make it yourself, calm your titties):
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
4-5 thyme sprigs
For the cocktail:
½ part thyme simple syrup
1 part vodka
2 parts grapefruit juice
Sprigs of fresh thyme, for garnish
Cherry, for garnish
Now before you panic that you have to make your own simple syrup, there’s a reason it’s called SIMPLE.
So here’s what you have to do… Start by making the syrup by combining sugar, water and thyme sprigs in a small saucepan. Let these suckers simmer for a bit on say, medium-low heat. Don’t forget to keep stirring until all the suga’ suga’ is dissolved. Once it’s done, let it chill for a sec and take out the thyme sprigs. FINALLY in a glass filled with ice, stir all that sh*t together and make your drink. Then obviously, garnish that bad boy with a sprig of fresh thyme and a cherry.
Voilà! You’re done! Now drink.
