Honey Thyme Margarita

Are you looking for a new tequila cocktail recipe for your next Zoom Happy Hour or for Cinco de Mayo? Try this honey thyme margarita!

This honey thyme margarita is made with fresh squeezed juices and thyme infused honey. 


Yield: makes 1, multiply as needed


  • 1 1/2 oz silver tequila
  • 3/4 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 3/4 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz orange liqueur, like Cointreu
  • 1/2 oz honey thyme syrup
  • coarse sea salt, to rim serving glass

Honey Thyme Syrup:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup liquid honey*
  • 6 3-inch sprigs fresh thyme


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add tequila, lime juice, grapefruit juice, orange liqueur, and syrup. Shake well until well chilled. Strain into a salt-rimmed serving glass.

Honey Thyme Syrup:

  1. Add water, honey, and thyme to a heavy-bottomed saucepot. Bring to a simmer until the honey has dissolved. Remove from heat and let thyme steep for 30 minutes. Strain out thyme. Transfer syrup to an airtight container and keep at room temperature.


  • I suggest using a mild, light-flavored honey. This will allow the thyme to shine through. If you use a dark-hued, strong-flavored honey, the herb will be lost. Use AlfalfaClover, or Orange Blossom honey for the best results.
