Aromatic Smash

A thyme and ginger aromatic twist on a daiquiri.
1 23 oz Light rum, Bacardi
1 oz Grapefruit juice
23 oz Lemon juice
23 oz Simple syrup (Thyme infused)
2 t Elderflower liqueur, St. Germain
4 lf Thyme
1 sli Ginger
Muddle a few leaves of fresh thyme and a roughly chopped up slice of ginger in a glass, add all other ingredients and shake over ice. Double strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with some fresh thyme leaves.
Make the thyme infused simple syrup by mixing up a batch of 1:1 sugar:water at room temperature with five or six large sprigs of thyme in the mixture (fresher the better). After a few hours the sugar and water will have combined (without the need to heat it) and become infused with the flavour of the thyme. Remove stems and any leaves that have broken off, bottle and refrigerate.
