An isle of lavender thyme

By Gordon ReviveR


The raven haired beauty wandered through the garden, the gentle scent of the lavender whisking her back to a simpler thyme…

  • 45ml The Botanist Gin
  • 15ml Lime juice
  • 15ml simple syrup
  • 4 basil leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon lavender


Add all ingredients to a shake and top with ice. Hard shake and strain into a chilled coupette. Garnish with sprig of thyme.

On a local path, not far from the bar, there grows a large outcrop of lavender. I then dryed a few sprigs in the dehydrator, then set about exploring the flavours. depending on the potency of the lavender, you may need to add a little extra. Care should be taken with the basil though as it can very easily over power the other ingredients.
