Summer Thyme

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.
