It is becoming the season for “Brunches”! Soon Easter will be here and after that Mother’s Day, which is definitely an earned day for cocktails (for those of you mothers, you know).
In leu of this, I deemed it appropriate to concoct a celebratory libation for the occasions, a fresh fruity herbal Mimosa that even the guys will love!
Fresh Ingredients are always the best.
Recipe: Makes 1 Cocktail
- 1 oz. Hendricks Gin
- 3 Fresh Strawberries – sliced
- 1/2 oz Thyme Simple Syrup
- 2-3 oz Sparkling Wine or Champagne
- * Recipe for the Thyme Simple Syrup
Profile: Original/Fruity, Herbal
Garnish: Fresh Thyme Sprig
Muddle fresh strawberries with the Thyme Simple Syrup & the gin then add ice, shake and strain through a fine mesh strainer into a Champagne glass filling the glass half way.
Top with your favorite sparkling wine or Champagne.
Garnish with a thyme sprig or even a strawberry if you wish. I happen to love the smell of the thyme as I am sipping the cocktail.
