Reinvent an old classic using our sparkling key lime cocktail with homemade thyme simple syrup recipe. Long title right? Well, it doesn’t take long to make and you’ll be sipping spiritedly in no time at all.
It only takes a few minutes to make your very own fresh simple syrup, and if thyme isn’t your favorite flavor, try using basil or rosemary instead. The rest of the ‘work’ is pouring your ingredients into a cocktail shaker then rattling your way to cocktail hour.
If you’re impressing guests, make sure to garnish with a small wheel of key lime and whichever herb you decided to use in the simple syrup. It’s a crowd-pleasure for sure!
