3 oz fresh thyme
1 strip dried orange peel
2 allspice berries
1 pinch anise seed
1 strip lemon peel
.75 liters vodka (I like Ketel One)
.25 liters water
100 grams sugar


  1. Wash and pat dry the thyme. Put all the ingredients except the vodka, water and sugar in a 1 liter container. Add the vodka. Weight the thyme so that it is completely submerged in the vodka. Cover the container tightly and put in a cool dark place for 2 months.
  2. Stain the vodka. Put the water and sugar in a saucepan, bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir well, then return to heat and bring to a boil again. Cool.
  3. Combine the cooled syrup and the strained vodka. Put into a clean bottle, cork and leave in a cool, dark place for two months to mellow.
