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!

Procedure

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!

Enjoy!
