Have I got a refreshing cocktail for you! Summer is the perfect time to incorporate fresh herbs into you cocktails and I’m so excited to make Cocktails with Alizé. I’ve been growing thyme in my back yard garden for years, it’s easy to grow and comes back year after year in my Georgia garden. Fresh thyme is easy to find in local grocery stores so pick some up and give this recipe a try.
Alizé Bleu Passion is a delicious blend of premium French Vodka, passion fruit, cherry and ginger flavors and vibrant blue color. I makes me happy just to look at it but even happier to drink it. Alizé Bleu Passion is fantastic on its own over ice but with everything blooming in the garden right now I couldn’t resist combining it with fresh herbs.
Here are the details of how I made my “No Thyme for the Bleus” cocktail. This recipe is enough for two servings.
First muddle 2 wedges of lemon in a mixing glass with 2 sprigs of fresh thyme. Muddling the citrus and herbs releases the juices from the fruit as well as the oils from the peel.
Second pour in 8 ounces of Alizé Bleu Passion and 2 ounces of gin
Third add ice and stir for 30 seconds
Finally, strain your cocktail into glasses and serve
There you have it! “No Thyme for the Bleus” – Cocktails with Alizé
