Lemon, thyme & pink peppercorn soda

Had an hour free before the commute into Newark, so decided I'd give my sister's suggestion of lemon & thyme soda a try.

8 sprigs of thyme boiled for 30 min, then the juice of 1 and a half lemons was added.
About 1/4 cups of white sugar was added, as well as the zest of the lemons
We debated how much lemon juice to add to make sure the more subtle taste of the thyme was not overwhelmed, eventually settling on about 7 tablespoons.
At the last minute we decided to see how the floral flavor of pink peppercorn would hold up - it ended up complementing the savory taste of the thyme and the acidity of the lemon very well.

And as a nice side note, our lemon & thyme soda makes a pretty kickass cocktail with Boomsa Genever (a gin aged in oak). Perfect Friday night drink.
