I love the idea of this rosé cocktail for spring and summer. You could serve it with seafood, egg dishes, salads, or maybe some spicy Mexican, Thai, or Indian food. It's not too sweet and has that savory aroma of thyme, so it's very versatile. I picture sitting outside with a glass of this one, absorbing some much-needed sun and listening to Yacht Rock while the robins chirp. Santé, my friends!Food pairing: All Day I Dream About Food's Chopped Greek Chicken Salad.

I included the calories and net carbs from the Créme de Mûre Blackberry Liqueur in the nutritional information for this recipe because it went perfectly with my dry rosé. You could also use my Sugar-Free Grenadine or just about any low-carb, fruit-flavored syrup you like. If your rosé is a bit sweeter you might want to skip it. You could also substitute your favorite herb for the thyme, or even match the herb to what you're cooking that day. Alternatively, you could garnish it with flowers, fruit, or even low-carb candy. This recipe is pretty flexible.
