Honey Thyme Simple Syrup
A lightly sweet honey simply syrup infused with fresh thyme.
Servings: 2 cup
- 1/4 cup quality honey
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 6 sprigs fresh thyme
Add honey and water to a small heavy bottomed saucepan. Bring to a low boil, stir to dissolve honey.
Add thyme sprigs, reduce heat to low. Simmer 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool completely. Once cooled remove thyme, discard.
Store unused honey thyme simple syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Tip- For a smooth mouthfeel when using fresh citrus juices strain through a fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth to remove pulp. Full recipe for my Honey Grapefruit Martini with notes of honey, thyme, and fresh squeezed citrus juice.
