Blood Orange & Pomegranate Thyme Spritz

Tomorrow I have a book signing at Anthropologie in Santa Monica from 2pm to 4pm. There will be cookies! After that I have to race home, change clothes into something fancier and a lot less cozy and head to my friend Teri’s wedding. Phew!

This past week has been HOT HOT in LA. And last weekend I was in Atlanta and it was hot there, too. And this past week it was v v warm in NY. I don’t know where fall is but I’ve been craving something super refreshing yet still very autumnal. For this post, I teamed up with Truly Spiked & Sparkling which is a new-to-me spiked sparkling water.

It’s like if your favorite sparkling water had a hint of blood orange flavor (their new flavor!) AND was spiked. It also is sweetened with cane sugar and not much else; the ingredients are simple!

It makes a v v good cocktail. I added a thyme syrup, pomegranate juice and a good amount of the blood orange flavor. The results were effervescent, crazy sparkling and screams fall! I loved it so much.

AND THEN! Since I love cheese, I paired it with the easiest appetizer of all time. I took a wheel of Camembert (you could also use Brie chz), topped it with a few sprigs of thyme, baked it for 15 minutes….then, drizzled it with honey and added some toasted pine nuts. That’s it. The easiest most delicious fall appetizer ever.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, set over medium heat, combine the cane sugar, water and thyme. Stir until the sugar has dissolved; bring to a simmer and then immediately turn off the heat, cover and allow to cool and steep, about 15 minutes. 
  2. Fill up four glasses with ice. Add an ounce (2 tablespoons) of syrup to each glass. Top with about 3 ounces of pomegranate juice and then top with the Truly Spiked & Sparkling Blood Orange. Give it a light mix and then garnish with thyme sprigs.
