Homestead Cocktail Instructions

The Homestead Cocktail is a refreshing and flavorful drink that combines the sweetness of bourbon with the tartness of lemon juice and the herbal notes of thyme. It is the perfect cocktail to enjoy on a warm summer evening.

To make a Homestead Cocktail, start by muddling a few fresh thyme sprigs in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. This will release the oils and flavors of the thyme. Next, add ice to the cocktail shaker and pour in 2 ounces of bourbon and 1 ounce of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Shake the ingredients together vigorously for about 30 seconds to chill and combine them.

Once the cocktail is properly mixed, strain it into a chilled glass filled with ice. Garnish the drink with a fresh thyme sprig and a lemon twist for added aroma and presentation. The Homestead Cocktail can be served straight up or on the rocks, depending on your preference.

This cocktail is versatile and can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of dishes. The sweetness of the bourbon pairs well with savory appetizers like cheese and charcuterie boards, while the tartness of the lemon juice helps cut through rich and fatty foods like grilled meats or creamy pasta dishes.

So the next time you're looking for a refreshing and flavorful cocktail to enjoy, give the Homestead Cocktail a try! Its balance of sweetness, tartness, and herbal notes will surely delight your taste buds.

Best served in a Cocktail Glass.
