It’s that time of the year! What time? Cocktail and mocktail time! It’s hot and I’m working a ton, so when I stop for the day I want a special drink. That could be with or without alcohol, as long as it’s refreshing and bursting with flavor. My Homemade Blueberry Thyme Syrup takes care of that part.
When it’s hot like this I cannot get enough ice into my drinks, and I love crushed ice. If you can get your hands on some or make it in your blender, I think it dresses this up even more!
Don’t you just love my vintage Libbey glass? Well, I’ve opened up an etsy store and you can buy some of your own by going here to Kitchen Kat’s Vintage.
This is so easy to make and you’ll wonder why you haven’t already done it. It’s as easy as adding fresh blueberries, sugar, and water to a pan, mashing the berries, bring almost to a boil. Then remove from the heat and add the fresh thyme and let it infuse for about 15 minutes.
And yes, you can do this with other berries and herbs too! Be sure to let me know what combinations you try in the comments!
