Cocktails always seem a bit more fun and festive when they come in the prettiest shade of pink and this version from Jacquelyn at Lark and Linen is infused with a medley of yummy flavors. Blackberry syrup, thyme and bubbly make this a sparkling cocktail that should most certainly be on the menu this weekend, don't you think?
