  • Pour 1/2 fluid ounce of the lemon thyme syrup into a tall glass. Add lemon juice and 3 raspberries; mash with a muddler or wooden spoon. Fill glass with ice and vodka; stir vigorously with a long spoon until well chilled. Fill glass with sparkling water.

  • Garnish with remaining raspberries, lemon slice, and 1 lemon thyme sprig.

Cook's Note:

Substitute regular thyme for the lemon thyme.

Chill leftover simple syrup and reserve for another use.
