Ingredients (4)

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons dried lavender

Summary

This is an intensely herbal syrup that is not for infusion wimps. Its floral notes work great mixed with gin, vodka, or even bourbon.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir to mix. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. 2Once the mixture boils, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the mixture is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  3. 3Remove from the heat and let steep 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the syrup to remove the herbs, and transfer to a container with a tight-fitting lid. Cover and refrigerate the syrup until ready to use.
