Tequila Thyme Spritz


It’s Tequila “thyme”! The perfect warm weather cocktail… tequila, bubbly, and fresh thyme.


  • 2 oz. tequila of your choice (blanco/silver/plata is suggested. We used reposado for a richer flavor.)
  • 1 oz. thyme simple syrup (easy ‘how to’ instructions below)
  • 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • (About) 4 oz. sparkling wine


  • Add tequila, lime juice and simple syrup to cocktail shaker with ice and shake thoroughly.
  • Pour into preferred glassware (we used a champagne flute) and top with sparkling wine.
  • Add fresh thyme sprig as garnish when serving (optional).

Thyme Simple Syrup:

  • Use equal parts white sugar and water.
  • Add 6-8 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Bring to a boil, then allow to boil for 5 minutes, which adds flavor and texture.
  • Strain through fine mesh and set aside to cool.
  • Simple syrup should have a slightly golden color.
