A Refreshing Thyme Tequila Lemonade Recipe


The easiest and most refreshing Thyme Tequila Lemonade Recipe. You can use store-bought light lemonade or make your own. The key is adding in fresh thyme and a good quality tequila!

Our Thyme Tequila Lemonade Recipe is so incredibly easy to make and very refreshing. It’s similar to our lemonade margarita, which is SO good and simple! For this boozy lemonade cocktail, we infused fresh thyme into it and the thyme adds a refreshing touch to the lemonade. This is a no fail cocktail, that most people will enjoy and can be made with store-bought lemonade or homemade, depending on how much time you want to put into it.

Newman’s Own Virgin Lemonade is my favorite store-bought lemonade and is sold at most grocery stores. I like it because it’s not too sweet, affordable and reminds me of old fashioned lemonade. And this isn’t sponsored in any way, just my opinion. You can actually buy fresh-squeezed lemonade at some stores too, so you have a lot of options for what type of lemonade you can use for this recipe!

What Alcohol can I use with Lemonade?

Lemonade goes with a few different spirits. You can use tequila, like we did in this recipe, and it adds a smokey, oaky, agave flavor to the cocktail. You can also use vodka, which is pretty flavorless when mixed with lemonade, so if you don’t like the taste of alcohol, vodka is the best spirit to use when spiking lemonade. Gin is also another alcohol that goes well with lemons. Gin adds a botanical flavor to the cocktail, which is really nice for spring.

If you want to add a little spunk to your cocktail, make Beyonce’s family lemonade recipe… because WHY NOT? Just for the pure satisfaction that you can tell your guests, “This is Beyonce’s Lemonade recipe,” is impressive and kind of fun!
