Now that the sunshine is finally making an appearance and things seem to be hotting up a bit at last, I wanted to share with you this delicious and cooling soda recipe, which is perfect for supping on a hot summer’s day…
1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 cups water, 1 oz. fresh thyme, juice of 6 lemons, soda water
Bring the sugar and water to a boil, then add the thyme and let steep until cool. Pass through a fine strainer. In an ice-filled glass, combine 1 1/2 ounces of the thyme syrup with 1/2 ounce of the lemon juice. Add soda water to taste.
And if you make extra and want a lovely vintage style bottle to store it in, look no further than this great range from Lakeland. The one pictured here has a ceramic cap, is made from recycled glass.
