May 15, 2020

It’s Friday and the sun’s out. We are upping our zoom Happy Hour game with this refreshing cocktail. Thankfully, our beloved fumé Brands culinary alchemists are also gifted mixologists and they’ve come up with this refreshing, otherworldly elixir, infused with the heavenly scents of lime and thyme and a dash of everyone’s favorite herb in the form of a cannabis tincture. So, shake up your quarantini game with this delicious cocktail and let’s raise a glass to all of the good things.

“An effervescent, citrus treat. Great balance—delicate sweet from the honey, thyme syrup, and sour from the lime trio. Bubbles that kick those nerve endings up a notch, delivering straight-up refreshment.” – Alex

“This cocktail is bright and refreshing! The honey thyme simple syrup pairs quite well with the lime elements and it adds a nice sweet and floral layer. Add a splash of your favorite sparkling water and vodka to create the perfect beverage for a day on the lake.” – Kevin
