Non -Alcoholic Lemon-Thyme Spritzer

If you’re anything like me, then you alway have a ton of leftover herbs after doing all of your holiday cooking. Today I’m sharing a recipe for a refreshing lemon-thyme spritzer that you can make with leftover thyme or rosemary.

One thing I’ve noticed is that cocktail recipes are everywhere during the holidays so I wanted to share a family friendly, non-alcoholic beverage recipe that anyone can enjoy.

My friends over at Sincere Fare were so kind in sharing their Lemon-Thyme simple syrup recipe with me. Sincere Fare is an experience centric brand that focuses on creating memorable moments, centered around the culinary arts. I used Sincere Fare’s simple syrup recipe as the basis for my spritzer.

In a small saucepan combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil and then cook on low until the sugar has dissolved.

Once the sugar has dissolved, turn off the heat and let sit for 1 hour.

Discard the thyme sprigs.

Once the syrup has cooled, pour it into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
