Living With Great Style

on the menu: lemon-thyme soda

There really isn’t anything like a summer drink. As we approach the holiday weekend that kicks off lemonade stands in our neighborhood, summer travel and gorgeous weather (let’s hope). I thought “why not post one of my new go-to drinks?” It’s easy, only calls for a few ingredients and most importantly it’s delicious. I guarantee any family member or guest that you serve in your home will love it. I bet they’ll even ask you for the recipe as they walk out the door.

Enjoy + cheers friends!


1 1/2 cups sugar 
2 cups of water 
1 oz. fresh thyme
Juice of 6 lemons
Soda water


Bring the sugar and water to a boil, then add the thyme and let steep until cool. Pass through a fine strainer. In an ice-filled glass, combine 1 1/2 ounces of the thyme syrup with 1/2 ounce of lemon juice.

a taste of summer . . .

Although there is fog in the city, it doesn’t mean that we don’t get to enjoy summer weather – let’s just say you’ve got to get creative. Like hopping in a car and driving up north to Napa. But on the rare summer days that are warm in the city, you’ll find me soaking in the sun in the back yard with my a good book and enjoying one of these delicious mojitos. My best friend from high school and I always meet up for them at our favorite joint in Portland, but this year we might have to make them ourselves. I can tell you one thing, I’ll definitely be indulging in these over the next few months!
