    1. Scrunch the thyme springs in your hand to bring out the natural oils and flavour.
    2. Place the sprigs along with the cucumber, zest, orange quarters, sugar and water into a small saucepan and bring to the boil.
    3. Turn to a low heat and simmer for approx 7-8 mins or until the mixture reduces to a syrup. Allow to cool.
    4. Strain through a fine sieve to remove the solids. (This syrup can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 month.)
    5. To serve, place the orange slices, cucumber slices, thyme sprigs and a little crushed ice into a jug.
    6. Add the syrup and top with the cans of eff Orange. Stir to combine.
    7. For a gorgeous looking drink, place extra orange slices, cucumber slices and thyme sprigs in your glass before pouring the spritzer over.
    8. Enjoy!
