Florida Orange & Thyme Cocktails

Orange and Thyme Cocktail by Fig & Honey

Happy New Year! Time flies and I can’t believe that it’s already January 1st. Last year was one of my favorites in a long time.  My husband and I traveled to so many amazing places we lost count, spent lots of time with family and friends and sampled some fabulous foods along the way.  I’m grateful we’ve had so many amazing opportunities and such supportive people around us.

Right now we’re spending our last days in the states with family and really looking forward to an exciting new year ahead.  To kick off the new year, we’re drinking these delicious cocktails. Since we’re in Florida, we’re making the most of the abundant citrus down here and whats new years day without a little bit of bubbly?

Italy is fast becoming one of my favorite countries in the world.  I could happily visit this country every weekend and not get enough.  The food is amazing and the whole country is rich with culture.  The people are friendly and the weather is mostly lovely.  Florence definitely solidified this for me.  It is by far one of my top 5 cities in the world.
