Dishing Up the Dirt

Honey Lemon Thyme Cocktails

I’m raising a glass and taking a break this evening.

Instead of blogging about our day at the farm I am going to join my two favorite guys and sip these lovely cocktails while we relax for the first time all day.  I invite you all to clink glasses with someone you love and disconnect from the world for a while. If you are in need of a refreshing and absolutely delicious cocktail these are them! Cheers.

        I tried it! Really great! My family loved this so I made a big pitcher. It needs a better name tho. The bee’s knees? Thyme for cocktails?

    Delicious drink but I had to cut the amount of lemon juice in half, otherwise the lemon was overpowering. Will be making again
