Blood Orange & Pomegranate Thyme Spritz

Tomorrow I have a book signing at Anthropologie in Santa Monica from 2pm to 4pm. There will be cookies! After that I have to race home, change clothes into something fancier and a lot less cozy and head to my friend Teri’s wedding. Phew!

This past week has been HOT HOT in LA. And last weekend I was in Atlanta and it was hot there, too. And this past week it was v v warm in NY. I don’t know where fall is but I’ve been craving something super refreshing yet still very autumnal. For this post, I teamed up with Truly Spiked & Sparkling which is a new-to-me spiked sparkling water.

It’s like if your favorite sparkling water had a hint of blood orange flavor (their new flavor!) AND was spiked. It also is sweetened with cane sugar and not much else; the ingredients are simple!

It makes a v v good cocktail. I added a thyme syrup, pomegranate juice and a good amount of the blood orange flavor. The results were effervescent, crazy sparkling and screams fall! I loved it so much.

AND THEN! Since I love cheese, I paired it with the easiest appetizer of all time. I took a wheel of Camembert (you could also use Brie chz), topped it with a few sprigs of thyme, baked it for 15 minutes….then, drizzled it with honey and added some toasted pine nuts. That’s it. The easiest most delicious fall appetizer ever.
