It’s gin thyme, again. Reading and thinking about libraries and their survival. And why you need “Electrophonic Tonic.”
My sage plant is gangbusters this year. So since you’re talking herbs and gin I can recommend: in a shaker pour 2 ounces Hendricks, 1 ounce St. Germain elderflower, 1 ounce grapefruit juice, three fresh sage leaves. Shake with ice. Strain and top with a little mineral water or Trader Joe’s elderflower lemon soda.
The 10 thyme smash: I had to substitute Trader Joe’s cranberry juice, which is red and unsweetened. So I added some simple syrup. The result is good, not as subtle but tasty and pretty.
Enjoying this Friday mail, Boychuk. Keep it coming.
