1 oz. London Dry gin
½ oz. fresh blood orange juice
¾ oz. fresh watermelon juice
¼ oz. fresh lime juice
¼ oz. thyme syrup

Add all the ingredients to an ice-filled shaker and shake to combine, then strain into the glass and garnish.

Thyme syrup: In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water to boil over medium heat. Once boiling, add 1 cup of sugar and a small bundle of thyme, stir well. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let steep for 10 minutes. Once cool, strain the syrup into a jar and keep refrigerated for 1 week.
