Start by making a simple double syrup: combine the sugar with the water in a saucepan over low heat, until dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin, Cointreau, lemon juice, 20ml (4 tsp) of the sugar syrup, thyme sprigs and egg whites. Shake without ice until the egg white is frothy.
Add 4 ice cubes and shake again until chilled. Strain into 4 chilled cocktail glasses. Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs dusted in edible glitter, if desired.
