After a long and busy week, Friday is finally here. With this in mind I thought I'd share a quick recipe with you; one that's the perfect way to end a busy week and see in the weekend.
Gin Thyme Lemonade
Quick, easy and refreshing. Be sure to buy a good quality lemonade for this recipe, you want it made with real lemons for that zingy flavour.
75cl bottle of traditional lemonade
1 small bunch of lemon thyme (ordinary thyme will do)
Pop two or three ice cubes into a tumbler and add a measure of gin. Top up with the lemonade and add a few sprigs of thyme and a slice of lemon. You could insert several sprigs of thyme into the lemonade bottle a few hours ahead of serving (remember to screw the lids back on tightly) for a stronger hit of thyme. Feel free to omit the gin for non-drinkers.
