- 1 bunch fresh organic thyme sprigs
- 1 cup organic sugar
- 1 cup water
In a small saucepan, combine the thyme sprigs, organic sugar, and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and allow the syrup to cool. Can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
- The thyme simple syrup
- 1 large organic grapefruit or 1/3 cup of Uncle Matt’s Organic Grapefruit Juice
- ¼ cup grapefruit-flavored organic vodka
- ¼ cup Hendrick’s gin
- Club soda
- Grapefruit slices, for garnish
- 4 fresh thyme sprigs, for garnish
Squeeze the juice of the grapefruit into a shaker filled with ice, or add Uncle Matt’s grapefruit juice if you can’t find any ripe grapefruit. Add the vodka, gin, and 1-2 tablespoons of the simple syrup. Add more as needed to taste. Shake well and pour into two chilled glasses. Top each off with club soda and garnish with fresh thyme sprigs, and grapefruit slices.
