Herb Infusion

TGIF!

So I came across this recipe and instantly was excited to try it…for many reasons.

One, vodka is my choice when it comes to liquor.

Two, I love lemonade because it is so refreshing.

Three, it reminded me of two different drinks I have had recently mixed into one.

At a friend’s party a couple weekends ago I had a delicious homemade spiked lemonade

which is one of the best drinks I have had in a while…simple but good!

Then I had a rosemary-infused vodka martini that was simply divine at a family gathering.

This is somewhat of a combination using a different herb to mix into the drink.

Don’t be scared…it’s good.

This refreshing and delicious!!

 

Vodka-Thyme Lemonade
