Thyme After Thyme

Thyme After Thyme sour cocktail with gin, Cocchi Americano, grapefruit juice, and fresh thyme

The humble thyme sprig has an outsized power in cocktail recipes, amplifying herbal and citrus flavors and adding a fresh-yet-earthy flavor that no liqueur can offer. Thyme After Thyme from Henry Truslow at Basic Kitchen in Charleston, South Carolina exemplifies this herbal magic, pairing fresh thyme with citrus, gin, and Cocchi Americano (a white wine apéritif – Lillet Blanc works as well).

Truslow’s original recipe used the thyme solely as a garnish, but we prefer to shake a sprig with the rest of the ingredients, and then garnish with a fresh one.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
