Herbs on the Rocks




Ηands on

Can a herbal refreshment be special and simple at the same time? Our friend Christina came up with a series of three-ingredient herbal syrups, sweetened with just natural Thyme honey – the most revered honey of Greece. Stir along with some ice cubes and sparkling water. Perfect to sip all day long, or for an alcohol free aperitivo!


Place a small saucepan on the stove. Add the water, honey, fruit slice and zest. Turn on the heat and slowly bring to a boil.Remove from heat and add the herbal tea. Steep for 10 mins covered, then strain.Chill for 2 hours before serving.


This is a light syrup without any added sugar – you can keep it in the fridge for 1 week, but it tastes nicer when fresh. Extra Tip: Lemon Verbena pairs better with lemon and Dittany from Crete  with orange!




For one drink you’ll need

1 shot of syrup
2 shots of sparkling water
half slice of lemon or orange
infused ice cubes*


* Use the same recipe to make the ice cubes.
Just pour the syrup into an ice cube mold and freeze!


3g Lemon Verbena (about ½ cup)
or Dittany from Crete
95g Thyme Honey
190ml filtered water
zest of 1 lemon or orange
a slice of lemon or orange
