Thyme and honey bring a warmth and a subtle flavor to this herbaceous spin on an old-fashioned. Feel free to steep the thyme in the syrup for a longer to intensify the flavor; you can even let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. This cocktail is wonderful shared with friends on an early fall evening, or anytime you just need to do a little self-care.
