Gin & Tonic with Lemony Thyme & Grilled Pineapple

I may have a new favorite Summer Thyme Sipper.  Gin & Tonic {with Grilled Pineapple & Lemony Thyme}Photo bomb courtesy of Scrappy Thyme.

Wow on so many levels.  Have you had grilled pineapple?  Turned your nose up at gin?  Questioned fresh herbs in a cocktail?  If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions…

Listen up.

Welcome Lemony Thyme with it’s wildly fragrant tiny leaves.  My most prolific herb.  I took this picture pre-7-days-of-rain….no kidding.  Wait until you see it now.  I’ve been harvesting and drying as fast as I can.

This is my #1 Whiskey Barrel Herb Porch Pot.  Lemony Thyme is thriving and her sister Sage isn’t too shabby either.

My kid sent me a text a couple weeks back with this picture below, captioned “gin lemon lime grilled pineapple and thyme. yep.”

Hello sexy and welcome to my world.  I knew on the first hot & sunny day of the season I would be enjoying a Gin & Tonic {with Grilled Pineapple & Lemony Thyme}.

Grilled pineapple is wonderful.  The sweetness intensifies and brings great flavor to our otherwise citrusy cocktail with lemon, lime and lemony thyme.  Shelby’s instructions were “muddle slightly, top with tonic.”

Delicious.  Refreshing.  Sings of summer thyme.

    Oh my goodness! I am totally in awe! This is wonderful! I am also crazy jealous of your thyme and sage pot! If I showed you a picture of mine you’d feel so sorry for me! Seriously, you have it going on with that herb bucket. The grilled pineapple must be so heavenly in that drink!

      Thanks so much Tracey. We’ve had so much rain all three buckets are thriving. Your hot dry climate must be challenging. This cocktail is delicious and perfect for summer entertaining. Thanks for stopping by. xo
