Blackberry-Thyme Gin Fizz

  • Yield: 2 cocktails (with syrup left over) 1x



For the Blackberry-Thyme Syrup: (will make extra)

  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 bunch of fresh thyme
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries

For the Cocktails:

  • ½ cup gin
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 1 egg white
  • Splash of half-and-half or heavy cream
  • 35 tablespoons of the blackberry-thyme syrup (or to taste)
  • ¼ cup cold seltzer water
  • Fresh blackberries, for garnish


For the Syrup:

  1. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer for a couple minutes and then remove from heat. Add the thyme and berries and allow to steep until cooled to room temperature. Remove the thyme and then pour the syrup and berries into a blender. Blend until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Keep cold in an airtight container until ready to use.

For the Cocktails:

  1. Place the gin, lemon juice, lime juice, egg white, half-and-half, and blackberry-thyme syrup into a large shaker (without ice). Shake vigorously for about a minute, then fill the shaker with ice, and continue to shake until everything is icy cold and frothy. Strain the mixture into two glasses. Pour the seltzer water into the shaker to pick up the foam leftover from the shaking. Spoon the resulting fizz on top of the glasses and garnish with fresh berries. Serve immediately.
