Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Serve something sweet to your sweet ♥ with this strawberry martini with whispers of fresh thyme.
adapted from: 101 Martinis
4 sprigs thyme, 1 of them for garnish
¾ ounce simple syrup
½ ounce freshly-squeezed lemon juice
2 ounces gin (I used Beefeater)
½ ounce Cointreau
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the strawberries and 3 sprigs of thyme with the simple syrup and lemon juice. Add the gin and Cointreau, fill with ice, and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the remaining sprig of thyme.
