Gin derives its predominant flavor from juniper berries, with hints of citrus and coriander. First consumed in the Middle Ages, gin has evolved from a medicinal tonic to a popular spirit used in the ubiquitous gin and tonic as well as a number of other cocktails. Our lemon thyme gin toddy pairs well with seafood, spicy Asian dishes, and any savory appetizer complementing the herbal and lemon notes.
Crafting this cocktail involves a two-step process. First, the SOUP cycle on the Wolf Gourmet blender turns fresh sprigs of thyme, sugar and water into a sweet, herbaceous syrup, adding a fresh, grassy note pairing wonderfully with gin.
The next step blends the gin, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, and ice with the syrup to make frozen toddies. Your guests may ask for another round. The recipe makes enough syrup for multiple batches of cocktails.
Any remaining thyme syrup will keep up to a month in the refrigerator. We’ll go into more detail about the wonderful versatility of simple syrups in an upcoming post.
