- 2 oz Gin
- 3/4 oz Lemon Juice
- 3/4 oz Simple Syrup
- 6 Blueberries
- 2 sprigs of thyme
Garnish: Thyme Sprig floating on top
Muddle the blueberries and thyme in a glass, add the rest of the ingredients then shake in ice and strain in to a cocktail glass.
This drink was created by Greg Bryson, the new Beverage Director at Hostaria Del Piccolo in Santa Monica. I tried it last week and found it to be absolutely delicious and perfect for the summer. It is refreshing, sweet and has a gorgeous pink hue from the muddled blueberries. The thyme gives an interesting scent and flavor to the drink without overpowering it.
I highly recommend heading in to Hostaria Del Piccolo (review coming soon) where you can get this and many other fresh ingredient concoctions on their new summer menu. On week days you can have it made by Greg himself. Enjoy!
