Here's another brunch-worthy cocktail that also harkens the fresh flavors of spring.  This Limoncello, Gin & Thyme Cocktail from is also potent enough to carry over into dinner.  I didn't grill the thyme like the recipe originally called for, as I sadly don't have a grill, but this citrusy libation tastes just as good.  The limoncello is also getting me in the Italian mood, as I'll be traveling to that fair country shortly with my family.  So stay tuned lushes, as I'm sure to bring back from food and drink ideas from my jaunts through Rome, Florence and Tuscany.  For now, you can just make this cocktail until I return...
