Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week Jackalope Ranch brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe. This week: Thyme Stands Still at R Bar
The R Bar at the Camelback Inn is home to a generous outdoor patio, a southwestern inspired cocktail list, and any locals looking for a mini getaway. Whether you stay a few days or a few hours, you might be tempted to make your visit last longer by ordering the Thyme Stands Still.
The Thyme Stands Still sets itself apart from the run-of-the-mill cocktail by offering an innovative blend of herb, Prosecco, raspberry, and vodka.
Add to that the subtle traces of lemon sour, vanilla liqueur, and agave nectar, and you've got yourself a drink that's not only refreshing, but also rejuvenating. It's enough to have you leaving the resort feeling completely renewed -- even if you didn't pack a suitcase.
To take your staycation to the next level, you can try making this recipe at home.
