Raspberry-Thyme Smash

Even though summer seems to be coming to a quick close, I’m still in the summer drink making mode.  Today’s Raspberry-Thyme Smash as originally posted by Bon Appetit is excellent although powerful.  This lightweight felt a buzz after the third sip.  Not surprising since there is 1/4 cup of Gin in one glass.
