Perfect way to drink a little whisky!

Thyme Infused Simple Syrup


1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
3 sprigs fresh thyme


1. In a small saucepan bring water, sugar and thyme to a simmer. Stir constantly until all sugar is dissolved. If you are using a plain apple cider try adding cinnamon, cloves, and allspice to the simple syrup to add a little fall flavor to your cocktail. Allow to cool before adding to your cocktail.
