Summer is the perfect “thyme” for some Lemonade. Add a little vodka to it and you have a refreshing cocktail to beat the heat!
 
Yield 2 servings
 
½ cup sugar
½ cup water
3 springs thyme + garnish
1 cup lemon juice, 7 - 10 lemons 
½ cup vodka 
 
In a small pan on medium heat, add the sugar, water, and thyme sprigs. Stir until the sugar has resolved. Remove the pan from the heat, discard the thyme, and let the simple syrup cool to room temperature. 
 
In a pitcher, stir together the lemon juice, vodka, and simple syrup. Pour into two glasses with ice. Garnish each with a sprig of thyme and serve.
