This cocktail is easy to make, especially once you nail the recipe for the infused simple syrup. Which is really melting sugar in water, until the consistency is syrupy. Infusing, just means leaving something in the mix so that its flavors marinate in the sugary water. It sounds complicated, but it’s not and it’s totally worth making a big batch, because it’s sure to be a hit.

The vodka thyme lemonade is so refreshing, and is such a crowd pleaser. The thyme really adds a beautiful earthiness and gives a simple lemonade a fun twist. Here is the recipe for the vodka thyme lemonade recipe.
