Thyme Lemonade

Thyme Lemonade

Since the weather has turned hot I have to admit that I’ve been really into making iced drinks lately.  Lemonade is hard to beat as the summer beverage.  Here is a nice variation on the much loved basic lemonade.  If you want to make this an adult drink then add 6 ounces of vodka and make sure to hide your “amped” lemonade from the kids!

 

INGREDIENTS

1 Bunch Thyme

1 1/2 Cups Sugar

1 1/2 Cups Water

2 Cups Fresh Lemon Juice

2 Cups Cold Water

Extra Thyme Sprigs For Garnish

Lemon Slices For Garnish

 

In a medium saucepan bring the thyme, sugar and water to a simmer over a medium heat.  Stir until the sugar dissolves.  Remove from the heat and let cool for 15 minutes.  Strain the sugar water into a pitcher filled with ice.  Now stir in the lemon juice and the cold water.  Serve over ice with thyme sprigs and lemon slices for garnish.  Serves 4
