Prepare a gas or charcoal grill fire for direct cooking over medium-high (500°F) heat. Grill the thyme sprigs until fragrant and lightly charred, about 15 seconds. In a mixing glass or cocktail shaker, gently muddle the grilled thyme with the lime juice. Add the gin and limoncello and fill the shaker with ice. Stir well. Strain into a chilled rocks glass filled with fresh ice, garnish with thyme, and serve.

I made this cocktail after being introduced to limoncello a couple years ago. You can substitute rosemary or basil for thyme as rosemary pairs well with limon flavors and basil pairs well with gin.
We don't have a grill, so just used fresh thyme. It was still good!
