This cocktail was good but not great. Not enough thyme flavor, the amount of lemon really overpowers it in this ratio. I have been making it with 1/2 an ounce of lemon juice to tone it down, but I still think its a bit too much lemon. I may make the syrup with just thyme and see if that works better.
