This strawberry thyme cocktail is made with fresh strawberry simple syrup, lemon juice and a touch of thyme. Make it a lower calorie cocktail by following the directions under the notes sections below the recipe. 



1/2 cup sugar

2 cups water, divided

1 cup strawberries, diced

1 lemon, juiced

Handful of thyme sprigs

4 shots of vodka

Extra strawberries for garnish


  1. Start by making the simple syrup. In a pot over medium high heat, add 1 cup of water and the diced strawberries. 
  2. Once the water and strawberries start to simmer, add the sugar. Stir to combine and turn the heat down to a low simmer for 8-10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and let the syrup sit for 5 minutes and thicken. Once cooled, strain the syrup to remove the cooked strawberries. 
  4. While the syrup is cooling, juice the lemon and mix it with 1 cup of cold water. 
  5. For one drink: Place ice cubes in cup until full, add 1 shot of vodka, 2-3 tablespoons of strawberry syrup and 1/4 cup of lemon juice. Stir to combine and place thyme sprig on top. 
  6. Optional garnish with fresh strawberries. 


If you wish for carbonation: add lemon juice to carbonated water. 

If you want to use a substitute sugar like Truvia or Splenda, it will lower the calories (1 drink=77 calories) and replace the white sugar with the substitute sugar for the syrup. The nutritional panel will look different from the one below.
