RECIPE: Summer Thyme Cooler

I created this cocktail in the Summer of 2008 during a roof-top party in NYC. It is a wonderful and refreshing drink to share with friends on a hot Summer day!


5 cups Fresh Seedless Watermelon (cubed)
2 TBS Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Thyme infused simple syrup
1 cup Vodka
1/2 cup Lemoncillo
Crushed Ice
Sparkling Water
10 Sprigs of Thyme


Start by making the simple syrup (1 part sugar to 1 part water), dissolve sugar into water in a small sauce pan over low heat. Add 5 sprigs of Thyme into the mixture and let sit for 15 minutes to infuse the flavor.

In a blender combine watermelon cubes, lemon juice and simple syrup. Pulse until blended together, then add the vodka and Lemoncillo and pulse for a few seconds until combined.

Pour into chilled highball glasses filled halfway with crushed ice. Garnish with a splash of sparkling water and a sprig of Thyme!

Yield: 4-5 Drinks
