Blueberry Thyme Gin Fizz

  • Author: Aberdeen
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1-2 1x

Description

A fun, refreshing summer twist on the classic cocktail with fresh blueberries and thyme.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 ounces Gin (I used Bombay Sapphire Gin)
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup (more or less as desired for sweetness)
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Club soda
  • Lemon slice or lemon twist, extra blueberries, thyme sprig to garnish

Instructions

  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle together the gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, blueberries, and thyme leaves. Make sure to smash the blueberries up well!
  2. Pour into a glass over ice (I did not strain the muddled mixture). Top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with a lemon slice, fresh blueberries and a sprig of fresh thyme.

Notes

To make simple syrup: Combine 1/2 cup sugar and a 1/2 cup water in a small pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let cool for about 5 minutes. Pour into a container and chill until completely cooled. Makes about 1/2 cup of syrup. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
