Grapefruit Thyme Spritz

Grapefruit Thyme Spritz

It’s so easy to make your own simple syrup and flavor it with whatever you like. Here I chose to use grapefruit juice and thyme to make a delicious spritz when combined with Cava and St. Germain. Homemade simple syrup will keep for up to a month in the fridge, so you can experiment with other drinks as well.
