Prosecco Plum & Thyme Smash
pairs well with
- 1 bottle of Torresella Prosecco
- 2 plums
- 6 thyme sprigs
- 1 oz. lemon juice
- 4 Tbsp. thyme simple syrup (store bought or made fresh)
Thyme Simple Syrup Instructions (to make fresh):
Add 1⁄2 cup of sugar, 1⁄2 cup of water to a pan, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, add thyme sprigs, stir and let cool. Chill until ready to use.
Prosecco Thyme Smash:
Peel and chop two (2) plums. Muddle the plums with the thyme simple syrup and lemon juice until all of the plum juices have been released (you can also muddle right in the glass if you prefer to have bits of fruit in your cocktail). Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker. Pour over crushed ice evenly between two glasses. Top with Prosecco and garnish with extra plum slices and thyme sprigs. Serve immediately.
