Cocktail Recipe: Slowing Thyme

With just a few warm days around the Village, we’re quickly getting excited for spring. Spring means baby animals, goodies from the garden and fun, outdoor activities on The Preserve. Incorporating fresh garden ingredients into the menu goes farther than just the food. As often as possible, we try to use ingredients from the property in recipes for food and drinks served out of The Trustees’ Table and in onsite catering services. Here’s one recipe that you’ll find on our menu this spring:


Slowing Thyme Cocktail Recipe


  • 1.5 oz. Hendrick’s gin
  • .75 oz. St. Germaine liqueur
  • .5 oz. classic simple syrup
  • .75 oz. lime juice
  • 3 cucumber slices
  • 2 thyme sprigs


Muddle one thyme sprig with simple syrup and two cucumber slices.

Add to the rest of the ingredients and shake.

Serve in a highball or Collins glass.

Garnish with thyme and cucumber.


Music on the Lawn starts in May, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until then to enjoy the patio and garden views. Grab a drink and a place by the firepit anytime of the year!
