Recipe – It’s a Pine Thyme for a Cocktail!

One of those days when only a tropical feeling cocktail will do.  Not because the weather called for it but almost because the weather did not call for it.

Pineapple Thyme Cocktail

Pineapple Thyme Cocktail

I wanted a herbaceous kick to the drink so went with thyme.

Ingredients

Serves 2

150 ml, Pineapple juice

50 ml, Thyme simple syrup, recipe below

75 ml, Rum

25 ml, Grand Marnier

Thyme simple syrup

Thyme, handful of sprigs

1 part, sugar

3 parts, water

Steep thyme in boiling or just boiled water and sugar and leave to infuse for at least 30 minutes.  Remove thyme.  If there is time, cool or refrigerate syrup before mixing.  Note: You can make and refrigerate this for several days….one step closer to tomorrow’s cocktail.

Add ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker and “shake it all about”.
