The Holiday's are the perfect occasion to get crafty with your cocktails and to try something new! Here's 3 super scrumptious recipes that are sure to impress all your holiday guests!

3 ounces lemon juice
4 ounces thyme simple syrup

To make thyme simple syrup, combine 2 cups sugar, 1 1/2 cups of water and 6 thyme sprigs in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring up to a boil and reduce to simmer, until the sugar has fully dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and place the syrup in the fridge to cool.
