This cocktail is perfectly balanced — refreshing, citrusy, herbaceous and perniciously potent — and it certainly took the edge off. The live music from Goga and gorgeous spring day didn't hurt, either. This is the perfectly sippable cocktail you'll want to get in the mood for a movie at LOOK, or you can mix one yourself at home to pregame for a Netflix and chill session.
1 oz. Bulleit Bourbon
1 oz. Lillet
1/2 oz. simple syrup
3 wedges of lemon
1 sprig of fresh thyme
Combine all ingredients in a shaker and muddle lightly. Add ice and shake until well chilled. Strain over fresh ice, then garnish with a lemon curl and sprig of thyme.
