1

Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to high.

2

Dip the lemon halves, cut side down, into a bowl of the icing sugar.

3

Place on the grill, cut side down, and leave for 10-15 minutes or until the lemons take on a golden colour.

4

In a medium-sized pot, combine 500ml of the water with the extra-fine caster sugar, maple syrup and 2 fresh thyme sprigs.

5

Place on the grill or over a medium heat and whisk until the sugar has completely dissolved. Add the two tea bags and steep for five minutes. Take off the heat and remove the thyme sprigs.

6

Place a sieve or strainer over a large bowl and squeeze out the juice from the charred lemons.

7

Stir in the honey and thyme syrup and add the rest of the water. Leave to cool completely.

8

Divide the syrup between six glasses, top with the crushed ice, soda, lemon slices and thyme sprigs.

To serve

Crushed ice, soda or sparkling water and 2 sliced lemons.
