06 Oct, 2019 | by Winerist


As Autumn rolls around, we kickstart the season of robust and hearty herb-based cocktails. Colder weather means more comfort in the glass and that’s exactly what Balcones brings to the glass. The addition of thyme, mixed with Balcones Baby Blue whisky and lemon juice creates a delicious cocktail: Thyme Tells All. Shaken and served cold with the addition of a thyme sprig garnish on top–it’s an irresistible cocktail worthy of your precious thyme.

Tick, tock. It’s Thyme to Fall in love with this mixology dream.
