Thyme Syrup Drinks

I made some thyme infused simple syrup following the recipe from the Art of the Bar book, so I adapted and invented some libations to give it a test drive.

B Restaurant and Bar with locations in Oakland and San Francisco has a delicious drink on their menu called Jones’ Grimace, it’s a blend of Bourbon, Sherry, Lemon Juice, Ginger Syrup and a Thyme sprig garnish. So I adapted this recipe to use thyme syrup instead, as I was out of ginger syrup and of course wanted to try my new syrup.

On Claras Thyme

  • 1½ oz Rye
  • ¾ oz Sherry
  • ½ oz lemon juice juice
  • ½ oz Thyme simple syrup (sub ginger syrup to make the original Jones’ Grimace)
  • 1 dash west indies orange bitters

Shake all ingredients with ice and fine-strain in to a cocktail glass. Garish with a lemon zest twist and/or Thyme

The second drink is my own concoction:

Clara Thyme

  • 2 oz Rye
  • ½ oz Apricot Liqueur
  • ½ oz lemon juice juice
  • ½ oz Thyme simple syrup
  • 1 dash west indies orange bitters

Shake all ingredients with ice and fine-strain in to a cocktail glass. Garish with a lemon zest twist and/or Thyme

Edit: On subsequent tastings the Clara Thyme needs a bit more work, I’ll have to revisit it sometime.

    Very interesting drinks!
    Do you use a dry sherry or a sweet sherry for “On Claras Thyme”?
