Raspberry-thyme Smash Cocktail


If you’re looking for a delicious summer-inspired cocktail to try your hand at, might I suggest this Raspberry-Thyme Smash Cocktail made with Gin and raspberries? I love the sweet and savoury combination of flavours in this drink. And not to mention the colour is beautiful!

Even if you’re not a huge fan of gin, I guarantee this cocktail is sure to delight.
