Thyme is a fabulous flavour to add to gin, it brings out all the floral notes. Try to get super fresh thyme so the leaves don’t crumble into your G&T. If you only have dried thyme you can still give this a try but don’t skip the straining stage, as dried thyme can be a bit woody.

I don’t like too much orange flavour so I give the gin a shake with a strip of orange zest and then garnish with a second strip. if you like more orange than add a thick orange wedge to your glass.

Make sure when you cut off the zest you do it over the glass, the oils that spray off will lightly coat the glass and give the G&T a loves zest.
