Summer Thyme

Made with fragrant ripe strawberries, fresh thyme, and vodka flavoured with the aromatic fruit feijoa, this cocktail is the essence of summer.


8 strawberries
4 sprigs thyme
80ml Tapatio Anéjo tequila
30 ml fresh lime juice
25ml elderflower cordial
20ml 42 Below feijoa vodka
ice cubes
To garnish:
1 strawberry, halved
2 sprigs thyme



Muddle the strawberries and thyme with the tequila in a cocktail shaker. Alternatively, use the end of
a rolling pin in a larger container to gently pound these ingredients together. Add the lime juice, cordial and vodka, top up with ice and shake for 1 minute. Strain into a jug, then strain a second time into two coupe glasses. Garnish each with half a strawberry on the rim and a thyme sprig curled
up the stem of the glass.
