Oh my!  The best tequila drink ever!!  Boom!!!

In a large pitcher combine…

16 oz. blue agave blanco tequila

4 cps. freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 1/2 cps. lemon thyme syrup (recipe to follow)

Stir to mix.  Divide between 8 glasses filled ice.  Top with soda water.  Garnish with fresh time sprig and lemon slice

Lemon Thyme Syrup

In a small pot combine 2 cups of sugar with 2 cups of water.  Add the zest of two lemons and 12 thyme sprigs.  Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.  Strain the mixture into measuring cup, discard thyme sprigs and zest.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator until needed.

Lemon Thyme Syrup can be made ahead and lemons can be juiced ahead.  Store separately and combine all ingredients at serving time.
