For cocktails:

8 ounces apple cider

4 ounces bourbon

4 tablespoons honey-thyme simple syrup

4 teaspoons lemon juice


For the simple syrup:

½ cup sugar

½ cup honey

1 cup water

10 sprigs fresh thyme

In a small saucepan, combine syrup ingredients.  Heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved.  Take off the heat and let sit for 30 minutes.  Strain through a fine sieve to remove any thyme leaves.  Store in refrigerator until cooled.  

To make the cocktail:

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.  Add syrup, bourbon & apple cider to shaker and shake until well mixed.  Add lemon juice and shake again.  Pour over ice and garnish with thyme sprigs and apple slices.
