Thyme simple syrup

You can use this recipe to make many kinds of herbal simple syrups. Other types I’d like to try: rosemary, lavender and basil. I already tried mint in this mint juleps recipe.

I enjoyed my grapefruit sour with a handful of spicy peanuts --- a little salute to the south.

I paired my grapefruit sour with a handful of spicy peanuts — so Southern. By the way, my drink may look darker than yours. The honey I used is a very dark buckwheat honey.

  • juice from 1 grapefruit, strained
  • 4 ounces bourbon
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • ice

In a small sauce pan, combine the honey and water and whisk over medium-low heat until the honey has dissolved. Bring the mixture to a boil and remove from heat to cool.

Combine the bourbon and grapefruit juice and shake with ice. NOTE: If you do not have a cocktail shaker, just stir the mixture around with the ice in a bowl on shake up in a jar with a lid. Add the honey simple syrup to taste.

Strain the drink into a glass over additional ice and serve.

Makes about 2-3 servings.
