I was looking online for cocktail recipes from the podcast, but it turns out it's not easy to search for Georgiou cocktails…So let this thread be the definitive resource!
It’s About Thyme
1-2 sprigs fresh thyme 1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice 1/2 oz. thyme simple syrup 2 oz.. Gin 1/2 oz. elderflower liqueur (Saint Germain)
To make the thyme simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water over low heat. Once sugar is dissolved, turn off the heat and add several sprigs of fresh thyme. Allow the mixture to sit, covered, for 10-15 minutes – more for a stronger syrup.
Combine the fresh thyme, lemon juice, and thyme simple syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker and use a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon to muddle everything together and infuse the mixture with the fresh thyme.
Once muddled, add your Gin and Elderflower Liqueur along with 2-3 ice cubes. Shake, strain, and serve. Garnish with more fresh thyme.
The Time Crystal
1 oz. Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal (http://delmaguey.com/crema/) (or sub mezcal of choice + small amount of agave or simple syrup)
1 oz. Triple Sec
½ oz. Maraschino liqueur
½ oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
To make the time crystals:
Ice cube tray
To make the blue ice, slice up some red cabbage leaves and boil for 10-15 minutes. Strain out the cabbage and continue to reduce the remaining liquid over heat until it begins to thicken only slightly. Cool the mixture and transfer to a glass bowl or jar, so that you can observe the color change. Add baking soda one pinch at a time, being careful to add enough baking soda to create your desired blue color, while avoiding altering the taste. Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze.

When ready to serve, combine the Mezcal, Triple Sec, and Maraschino in a glass or cocktail shaker and stir over ice. Pour into your glass of choice and add two or three blue ice cubes. Last, stir in the freshly squeezed lime juice and watch your time crystal turn into a beautiful Red Angel.
While I didn't care for the most recent DIS episode or the name for Valerie's cocktail, I did think the drink itself sounds fantastic. And it changes colors?! Even Martha Stewart would envy how Valerie made her own natural food coloring!
So do you guys actually make these? How do you know what to do? If you make them I NEED PHOTOS! Or vids.
To help you navigate your journey through Season 2 and to celebrate Project Daedalus!
The Golden Thread
2 oz. light or white rum (I used Plantation)
1 oz. Strega
1 oz. lemon juice
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake, strain, and serve! Garnish with hand-crafted, miniature wax wings!
If you want all your drinks to look like a Katra Stone, just put them in a carnival glass! You can’t really see the iridescence here but it’s quite stunning in person.
2.5 oz. Strega
1 oz. Earl Grey infused gin
(you make this just by steeping some Earl Grey tea in some gin for as long as you like)
