Peach Gin Cocktail with Thyme Syrup Recipe
1. For the Thyme Syrup, mix sugar and water in small saucepan. Bring to boil. Remove from heat. Add thyme; let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to dissolve sugar. Strain. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled. (This makes enough syrup for 8 Peach-Gin Cocktails.)

2. For each cocktail shaker of Peach-Gin Cocktail, fill cocktail shaker half full with cracked ice. Add 1/2 cup of the fruit, 1/4 cup of the peach schnapps, 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) each gin, liqueur and Thyme Syrup, and 2 teaspoons of the lime juice; shake until well mixed and chilled. Strain over ice into 2 cocktail glasses. Garnish each glass with a peach slice and thyme sprig. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 8 cocktails.
