Yesterday was national “Lemonade Day”. When life gives you lemons get lit on lemonade.

The thyme infused syrup was a nice touch. I still struggle with ratios on stuff like this because I dont like it very sweet but my wife likes it on the sweeter side. I think for me, I would try this ratio: 4 parts Whiskey 1 part lemon juice 1/2 part syrup.
1.5 cup water and 1 cup turbinado to make simple syrup
10 sprigs of fresh thyme
1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
12 oz bourbon
Fresh thyme sprig
Topped with Club soda
1 Make simple syrup by dissolving the sugar in the water and 10 sprigs of thyme to infuse the syrup. Let it cool.
2 In two tall glasses, combine thyme simple syrup, lemon juice, and whiskey; stir with wooden spoon.
3 To serve, pour lemonade over ice into cups, filling each half full. Top each with club soda. Garnish with thyme sprigs.
