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.
