    Thank you for this recipe. Love these flavorful drinks. One I would like to share with you is a “Raspberry Thyme Smash”

    2 fresh thyme sprigs, divided
    7 fresh raspberries, divided
    1/4 cup Hendrick’s gin (is infused with cucumbers and rose petals)
    2 tablespoons simple syrup
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    ice cubes
    Remove leaves from 1 thyme sprig, place in cocktail shaker. Add 6 berries: mash with muddler. Fill cocktail shaker with ice; add gin, simple syrup and lime juice. Cover, shake vigoursly until cold. Srain into highball glass filled with ice. Thread 1 raspberry onto remaining thyme sprig; place on rim of glass.

    Can’t remember if we shared this with you once at our place.
