Strawberry & Thyme Slushie Cocktails



Yield 2 Cocktails

Sweet strawberries are muddled with aromatic thyme and white rum, with crushed strawberry ice and topped up with soda water. The perfect Valentine's Day Cocktail


For the cocktail:

Equipment needed:


  1. Put the total of three strawberries (four, if they're small berries) chopped into quarters into each highball glass. Add the the leaves of four sprigs of thyme to each glass.
  2. Use a muddler (or wooden spoon if you don't have a muddler) to crush them together and release all the flavours. 
  3. Put 2oz/50ml of white rum in each glass. 
  4. Put the ice and remaining strawberries in your Vitamix Blender with the ice. And blend until crushed into a slush consistency (with a vitamix this will take no more than 60 seconds usually, use a tamper to help get the ice to the blade if needed)
  5. Spoon the strawberry slush into the glasses, filling about 2/3 full. Top up with soda water. Stir with your cocktail spoon three or four times.
  6. Garnish with a sprig of fresh thyme and a whole strawberry (cut into a heart shape if you feel fancy/cute). 
  7. Serve immediately


The soda water amount is approximately, how much you use will depend on the size of your glass and personal preference. 

To make into a mocktail, just omit the rum.
