    • Small microwave-safe bowl
    • 6-oz. cocktail glass
    • Cocktail shaker

    1. Make Bloody Simple Syrup: Add raspberries, thyme sprigs, water, and sugar to a small saucepan. Whisk until sugar has dissolved. Simmer until the mixture becomes thick and syrupy. Remove from heat. If desired, strain and discard raspberry seeds. Set aside to cool.
