Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp Stevia or sweetener/sugar of choice (see note 1)
  • 1/2 cup thyme
  • 1/2 cup grapefruit juice
  • 1/3 cup soda water

Instructions

To make the thyme syrup

  • In a small saucepan, combine water and sweetener/sugar of choice over medium heat. Stir until the sweetener/sugar is dissolved.
  • Add thyme and simmer on very low (barely bubbling) for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit it for at least half an hour, or up to 3 hours. Strain and cool.

To make the mocktail

  • Add 1 tablespoon thyme syrup and 1/2 cup grapefruit juice to a glass. Add lots of ice, top with soda water and stir gently. Garnish with extra thyme and serve.
  • You'll have enough thyme syrup for 4-5 mocktails!

Notes

Note 1: I used Stevia for this recipe and 1 tbsp was plenty as Stevia is so sweet. If you are using regular sugar, use a 1:1 ratio of sugar to water, so 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water. If you use a different sugar replacement, check their recommendations on the pack.
