I told you in the video that these were the cutest little recipes card you ever would see!
Was I right, or what!
Cocorrina is just a beautiful artist! Check out her stuff!
Lemon Thyme Vodka
Before I get into the recipe and if you haven’t seen the video yet, I had a big oops when it came to this recipe. You see I thought it said 2-4 (two to four) lemons, nope it said 24 lemons. So in my recipe in the photo it was like 95% vodka and like 5% other stuff. You live & you learn.
Thyme Simple Syrup
* 2 cups sugar
* 2 cups H2O
* Handful of thyme sprigs
Bring all ingredients to a boil. Let cool, then strain. Put in fridge to chill.
In a pitcher add the juice of 24 squeezed lemons, 2 cups of the simple syrup, 2 cups of the vodka of your choosing, and ice.
Blackberry Mint Julep
I did this a little bit differently than what Cocorrina had suggested in her recipe. I mad the blackberry into a simple syrup and then added it in while I was shaking (not stirring) it.
Blackberry Simple Syrup
* 1 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup H2O
* Package of blackberries
In a pot bring all ingredients to a boil and then let simmer for 30 min. Strain and cool.
In a cocktail shaker add bourbon, blackberry simple syrup, ice, mint leaves. Strain and pour over ice. Garnish with blackberries and mint leaves.
In my opinion the Blackberry Mint Julep won, which has nothing to do with the fact I put in a full bottle of citrus vodka into the other drink (lol).
