Thyme on My Hands Cocktail Vision
Rainy weather has
me stuck inside the boat y, I guess you know what I’ve been up to. You guessed it playing with new syrups and
cocktails. I heard an old song that
gave me an idea to play a little bit with some herbs and thyme looks like the

bit and yield a very flavorful afternoon cocktail. This is the perfect refreshing afternoon
delight, no matter what the weather conditions.

sugar and the thyme in a pan and heat to 435 degrees. Do Not stir, wait until the sugar begins to
melt and add the lemon juice. Stir until
the thick syrup begins to boil. Slowly
add the water as you stir the mixture.
Keep stirring until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to 230 degrees and allow
