About Thyme {a gin thyme cocktail}

If I had to pick a favorite spirit for the warmer months of the year, it would have to be gin. I love relaxing with gin and tonics in the afternoon (especially when camping), as well as sipping on various gin cocktails after a long day in the sun. Since the garden is still in full production of herbs, one of my go to gin drinks right now is this gin thyme cocktail.

For this gin thyme cocktail, I decided to go the herbal route with most of the ingredients. Fresh thyme, Cocchi Bianco and Yellow Chartreuse along with my newly acquired bottle of Nolet’s Silver Gin. Along with the tradition juniper in gin, Nolet’s also has Turkish rose, peach and raspberry. It makes for a fabulous gin and tonic and a martini – stirred, not shaken.

While your garden is still brimming with fresh thyme, grab a few sprigs and get to shaking. Before you know it the cold weather will be back upon us and we’ll be dreaming of sunny days and gin cocktails.
