    if you really want to infuse the thyme flavor into this drink, boil it in the simple syrup. for lemonade I like to make a maple syrup/thyme simple syrup as the sweetener. It's DELICIOUS.

    It would only work if you heat up the lemonade. The Thyme needs to steep to get the flavour.

    What if you already have some lemonade made? Do you think just adding some thyme in the jar and letting it sit overnight would work?
