Summer is in full swing now, so we’re showcasing one of its most iconic symbols (at least in Britain): the strawberry! This juicy fruit is at the heart of the new Tom’s Strawberry Thyme cocktail from In The Welsh Wind Distillery. Designed by mixologist Owen Williams, the cocktail uses Young Tom Gin – from the distillery’s Eccentric Spirit Co range – as its base. With the addition of elderflower and thyme alongside strawberry, this is a true sip of summer!
Tom’s Strawberry Thyme
- 50ml Eccentric Young Tom Gin
- 15ml St Germain elderflower liqueur (or use elderflower cordial for less alcohol)
- Four strawberries, chopped
- 25ml fresh lime juice
- 10ml simple syrup
- One sprig fresh thyme
- Fresh strawberry, to garnish
Add the chopped strawberries to a shaker and muddle. Add the thyme sprig, then pour in the gin, liqueur, lime juice and syrup. Add ice and shake. Double strain into an Old Fashioned glass filled with crushed ice and garnish with half a strawberry.
