Limoncello, Thyme and Gin Cocktail

The Limoncello and Gin Cocktail with a hint of crushed thyme is a beautiful drink, easy to sip in the sun and has a fresh aromatic yet glorious citrus flavour.

The gin and tonic is a classic drink and one that is proving so popular at the moment. I’ve enjoyed trying out different gins but I love a cocktail so I’ve been experimenting with adding other flavours to my G&T. My latest, and no go to, addition to my gin and tonic is adding limoncello with a hint of crushed fresh thyme. The mix of the strong gin and bubbly tonic flavour with the citrus and sugary lemon mixes so well. The addition to the thyme adds an earthy flavour and incredible smell that ties all the tastes together.

Yes you can see a cake behind the cocktails… the cocktail cake will be revealed soon!
