Blood Orange Thyme Paloma
This is hands down, my new favourite summer cocktail. I'm not usually a fan of sodas or sweet drinks, so I was hesitant to try it at first, but I'm glad I did.
I LOVE tequila, and the earthiness of the thyme combined with the tart blood orange, makes it refreshing and delicious.
