Thyme and Lime Honey Cocktail with Honey Rosemary Pecans

Thyme and Lime Honey Cocktail Recipe

Thyme and Lime Honey Cocktail

If a cocktail could define summer, this drink would be it. It’s light and refreshing but offers layers of flavor that will leave you wanting refills. The recipe only calls for an ounce of honey simple syrup so you’ll have plenty to make more. Also feel free to swap in different types of thyme, such as lemon, lime or orange thyme.

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce elderflower liqueur, such as St-Germain
  • 1 ounce Red Belly Hemp Honey simple syrup, recipe follows
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Ice, as needed
  • Club soda, as needed
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme, to garnish
  • Lime slices, as needed

Combine gin, St-Germain, simple syrup and lime juice in a shaker filled with ice; shake well. Pour into a tall glass with ice and top with club soda.

Roll thyme sprigs between your hands a few times to release the oils and garnish with lime slices. Makes 1 drink with enough honey simple syrup for about 7 more.

To make honey simple syrup, simmer ½ cup water, remove from heat and add 10 sprigs fresh thyme and two long strips lime peel removed with a vegetable peeler. Stir in ½ cup Red Belly Hemp Honey until dissolved. Steep until cool; strain.


Honey Rosemary Pecans

This may become your latest weakness, especially if buttery, sweet and salty snacks are hard to resist. Fortunately, you can justify it with the healthy benefits of Red Belly Hemp Honey and pecans.

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt
  • ⅓ teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • ¼ cup Red Belly Hemp Honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely minced

Melt butter with salt and pepper. Place pecans in bowl; add butter, honey and rosemary. Mix to evenly coat. Spread on baking sheet lined with parchment paper; bake at 325° F until toasted, about 12-15 minutes.
