Directions

Special equipment: melon baller

Chill the martini glasses.

Fill the shaker with ice. Combine the vodka, apple juice, and thyme syrup in a martini shaker. Shake for about 10 seconds. Divide between the 4 chilled martini glasses.

Use the melon baller to scoop out small balls of apple. Place 3 balls of apple and 1 sprig of thyme in each glass for garnish. Serve immediately.
In a saucepan combine sugar, water, and thyme over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and cool the syrup. Any extra cooled syrup can be saved in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

    I made this recipe exactly per the directions for a dinner party. It was delicious and it was a very attractive drink! Everyone asked me for the recipe. I do not understand people who do not follow the directions and then complain about the outcome. :

    Have made this 3 times, and each time I didn't have any fresh thyme, so added a sprinkle of powdered to the mix in the shaker. First time I made it (except for the thyme according to the recipe--it was TOO sweet and TOO vodkay. Second time I cut the vodka to 4 oz. and used sweet syrup at 1/2 the strength of what was written. It was better, but not sweet enough. Third time was the trick--used 4 oz. of vodka and syrup made with 3/4 cup sugar and 1 cup water. Now it was GREAT!!!
