Vodka-Thyme Lemonade

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2003


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 12 sprigs fresh thyme, plus more for garnish
  • 4 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice, about 24 lemons
  • 2 cups vodka


  1. In a small saucepan, combine 2 cups water with the sugar and thyme; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat; let cool to room temperature.

  2. Pour mixture through a fine sieve into a large glass measuring cup; discard thyme. You should have 2 cups syrup. Cover with plastic; chill.

  3. In a large serving pitcher, stir together lemon juice, vodka, and chilled syrup; garnish with thyme. Divide evenly among eight tumblers filled with ice; serve immediately.

    if you really want to infuse the thyme flavor into this drink, boil it in the simple syrup. for lemonade I like to make a maple syrup/thyme simple syrup as the sweetener. It's DELICIOUS.

    It would only work if you heat up the lemonade. The Thyme needs to steep to get the flavour.

    What if you already have some lemonade made? Do you think just adding some thyme in the jar and letting it sit overnight would work?
