Thyme Simple Syrup
Who can resist the cookbooks at Anthropologie? Anyone? Or is it just me, that walks out after every single visit with a new cookbook or two? I don’t know who it is that chooses their cookbooks, but we are on the same wavelength. I want every single one in the store. Sometimes it’s fun to walk through and see how many I have. Mr. Sidewalk Shoes doesn’t find that so amusing, but I do.
My latest find was Wild Cocktails from the Midnight Apothecary: 100 Recipes Using Home-grown and Foraged Fruits, Herbs, and Edible Flowers. I know. I already have a zillion cocktail books, but I loved the premise of this one. The promise of unusual herby cocktails.
She uses the Thyme Simple Syrup in a couple of cocktails. Making flavored simple syrups is so easy and the possibilities are endless. You can use this in cocktails as a sweetener in tea or lemonade or it can even find it’s way into your cooking. Imagine this drizzled over a lemon pound cake!
Thyme Simple Syrup
