Strawberry-Thyme Lemonade Cocktail

1 Min Read


1 | To make the simple syrup, stir sugar, water, strawberries, and thyme together in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Bring to a low simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 10-15 minutes until sugar has dissolved and strawberries have softened. The syrup should turn a bright, rich pink color as the strawberries begin to break down.

2 | Remove syrup from heat and let cool for 20-30 minutes, then strain to remove all fruit and herbs.

3 | To make the lemonade, in a large pitcher, mix together lemon juice, water, and simple syrup. For a non-alcoholic version serve in cocktail glasses over ice and skip to step 5. For a cocktail, continue to step 4.

4 | To make the cocktail, add lemonade and 4 ounces of tequila (or your spirit of choice) to a large cocktail shaker. Shake over ice until chilled, then pour into cocktail glasses filled with ice.

5 | Garnish drinks with fresh strawberries and a sprig of thyme (optional), and serve immediately.
