Nectarine & Thyme Refresher

 Like everyone else living in Los Angeles, I love going to my local farmer’s market and getting seasonal fruits and veggies to inspire my culinary adventures. During my last visit, the scents of sweet nectarines were so enticing that I couldn’t resist buying a few too many.  In sticking with my theme of seasonal living, I made a few summer cocktails to enjoy on the porch with my husband in the summer evening breeze.  Check out a few of my other Nectarine Farmer's Market cocktails at CGC Daily.
Ingredients:  (serves one) 
½ nectarine
Sprigs of fresh thyme
2 oz Gin
½ oz St. Germain
½ lime
Club soda

Directions: In a shaker, muddle the nectarine slices with one tsp of sugar, a sprig of thyme and a splash of water. Add lime, gin, St. Germain, some ice and shake. Strain and serve in a mason jar with ice, top with a splash of club soda and garnish with a slice of nectarine and sprig of thyme.
