Lemon-Thyme Pimm's Cooler
Pimm's No. 1, a gin-based liquor with a somewhat lemony, spicy, and bitter flavor, pairs beautifully with the homemade lemon-thyme syrup in this cocktail.
- 1/4 cup Pimm's No. 1
- 1/3 cup Lemon-Thyme Simple Syrup
- 5 to 6 tbsp. lemon juice
- Lemon twists
- Thyme sprigs
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 (4-in.) thyme sprigs
- 4 slices lemon
- Stir together sugar, 3/4 cup water, the thyme, and lemon in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. When the first bubbles appear, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer gently 5 minutes. Let cool, then strain. Keeps up to 1 week, chilled.
- Note: Nutritional analysis is per tbsp.
Combine Pimm's, syrup, lemon juice to taste, and 2/3 cup water in a small pitcher. Divide between 2 ice-filled tumblers. Wrap lemon twists around thyme sprigs and garnish glasses.
