This one’s for my cognac lovers! I don’t know if it’s my love for good food and cooking, or if it’s the originality of it, but I just love a cocktail that includes elements of cooking! This one has fresh thyme incorporated, and it’s super delicious, not to mention easy as pie. Kick back in the heat with this cooling drink.


What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Hennessy (or quality cognac of your choice)
  • 3 oz lemonade
  • fresh thyme or lemon thyme

Add a couple of twigs of fresh thyme on the bottom of a highball glass. Tap or lightly press the thyme to release flavor and aroma. Add ice. Add Hennessy, then lemonade. Stir lightly.
