Thinking of Drinking: Thyme Gimlet

I was inspired to make this Thyme Gimlet after having cocktails this week at Cafe Dupont.  You'll love the earthy herbal combination with citrus.  Cheers!

1 bunch thyme
1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/4 cups simple syrup (prepared by melting 2 cups sugar in 2 cups water and cooling)

Muddle the thyme in the gin and let it steep for several hours. Combine the ingredients in a large pitcher.  Pour mixture into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into chilled cocktail glasses.

Makes 4-6 cocktails.
