I personally love anything that thyme has been added to. It’s probably my favorite herb. I recently had a cocktail at a restaurant that infused thyme into their sweeter of the drink. So I guess this is my at home version! I named this cocktail “berry” thyme sparkling cocktail.. because you can use a variation berries and it seems to me that whatever you use, the drink is delicious! I used raspberry for one and blackberry for the second. Both of them each have a different flavor profile but work wonderfully with the thyme and hints of lemon and sparkling rosé. Plus the colors are just so vibrant an gorgeous!
