Luscious  Golden Lemon ~




Thought our Easter celebration could use a pretty little

citrus- cocktail infusion. So, I came up with this 

signature cocktail:




 The Meyer Lemon-Thyme Drop.

(You know me…with my herb obsessions!)

It’s super simple. The magnificent Meyer, gives the 



libation a golden  richness and there is 

just a hint of earthy  thyme, thanks to a

 a batch of my



lemon-thyme  simple syrup.

It’s half vanilla sugar, half

        not…with a few springs of fresh thyme

thrown in. Add good Vodka, lots of ice…



shake and

pour. Love this gorgeous &

vintage, gold rimmed



glass, from my sister, Barbara, especially

encrusted with jewel-like 

Meyer Lemon sugar!!! Oh MY!




Mother nature got it right when she

created the lovely lemon.




The Meyer Lemon-Thyme Drop
Serves 2
The Meyer Lemon-Thyme Drop combines the sweet richness of freshly squeezed Meyer lemons and a super simple, lemon-thyme simple syrup with just a hint of vanilla. Just add Vodka & Ice. It's a cocktail glass!
