Plum and Thyme Prosecco Smash

plum and thyme prosecco smash

This summer has definitely been about mixing cocktails with herbs: basil, mint, or thyme – I love them.  They add an earthiness and just enough flavour to a cocktail to make it special.  And because I love words and will never tire of it’s ‘thyme’ for a cocktail, this week I’m kicking off the weekend with a Plum and Thyme Prosecco Smash.

As a kid I loved plums, I could eat them by the bowl full, but for some reason over the years, they’ve fallen out of favour for me.  I seem to pass them by, choosing peaches or pears instead.  But a few weeks ago I came across a version of this cocktail and was inspired to combine a childhood favorite with my grown-up favorite – Prosecco 😉  While my copious love of plums hasn’t quite re-emerged, this cocktail is delicious and one I’ll enjoy again and again.  It’s the perfect way to kick off the weekend or enjoy a Sunday brunch.  Cheers!

Strawberry Thyme Cocktail

July 15, 2016


Happy Friday Friends!  Gray skies and never ending rain won’t put a damper on my weekend festivities!  Kicking things off with this bright summery Strawberry Thyme Cocktail that combines a simple strawberry syrup with earthy thyme leaves.

Have you tried making your own syrups?  I’ve been doing it for a while now and absolutely love it!  They are simple to make and can be used in a variety of ways – over ice cream, pancakes or waffles, in oatmeal, with plain soda water and anywhere else you’d like to add a bit of sweetness.  Bottled up and tied with ribbon, they make a lovely hostess gift. Enjoy!
