Honey and Thyme Daiquiri

You'll need

15 ml lime juice 10 ml honey and thyme water (see note) ½ fresh fig 60 ml (¼ cup) rum (see note above) To garnish: sprig of thyme


  • 01
  • Muddle all ingredients except rum to a bar glass or shaker.
  • 02
  • Add rum and ice cubes to shaker, shake hard and fast, then strain into a coupe or martini glass. Float a sprig of thyme to garnish and serve.
Note For honey and thyme water, dissolve honey in an equal amount of hot water. Add a few sprigs of thyme and steep overnight to allow the thyme flavour to infuse.

“This drink also works well with crushed ice, in which case you don’t need to shake so hard and fast, or strain.” – Matt Bax
