Nectarine Thyme-tini
 
 
St. Germain is a wonderful liqueur made from Elderflowers. It has a nice floral, citrusy flavor.
Serves: 1 Martini
Ingredients
  • 1 nectarine
  • 1 oz. thyme infused simple syrup
  • 2 oz. gin (or vodka)
  • ½ oz. St. Germain liqueur
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 1 oz. club soda
Instructions
  1. Puree nectarine and simple syrup in blender. Strain through a fine mesh strainer, pressing with a spatula to get all the juice out of the pulp. You should have about 2 ounces. Reserve puree juice and throw out the remaining pulp. You can skip the straining if you don't mind the pulp in your cocktail.
  2. Add puree to cocktail shaker with ice. Add gin or vodka, St. Germain, lime juice, and club soda. Shake well and strain into martini glass. Garnish with sprig of thyme.
To make the simple syrup:
Combine one cup sugar and one cup water in small saucepan with a bunch of thyme sprigs. Bring to a boil to dissolve sugar, turn off heat and let cool. Remove thyme sprigs and store syrup in refrigerator.

Optional:
Try serving this cocktail in a tall glass with ice and top with club soda. Just omit the club soda when shaking the ingredients and top off the drink with it.
