MAKES 1 COCKTAIL
Cara Laudino, bar manager at Miller Union in Atlanta's historic Railroad District, uses fresh thyme from the restaurant's garden to create a bright contrast to the juniper and cucumber notes of Martin Miller's Gin.
1 1/2 oz. Martin Miller's Gin
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz. thyme syrup*
1 sprig thyme, for garnish
Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with thyme.
*To make thyme syrup, bring 1 cup water and 1 cup white sugar to a boil until the sugar dissolves. Let cool, decant into a jar, add 2 thyme sprigs, and steep overnight.
