Leave the booze out of this lemonade? Not by the hair on my ginny-gin-gin

OK, that was bad, but this drink recipe is really good.
   Thyme Lemonade (click here for the recipe at the Everyday Food website) is a fabulous summer drink from from the June 2008 issue of Everyday Food.
   The recipe says the gin is optional, but I highly recommend adding it. It takes the drink to a whole new level of deliciousness.
   Anyone freaked out by the idea of herbing up a lemonade with thyme, usually found in meat dishes and soups, need not worry. With the lemon, it's a refresher.
   This is one of the recipes in I successfully substituted an equal amount of Splenda for sugar.
   Sugar (in my case, Splenda), fresh thyme and water are brought to a boil to make a simple syrup. This is stirred into lemon juice, water and gin.
   Refrigerate, then serve.
