  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 sprigs fresh lemon thyme, plus extra to serve
  • 1 green apple, thinly sliced
  • 2 x 750 ml chilled sparkling apple cider
  • 3 cups crushed ice

Stir ⅓ cup apple vodka (or vodka), caster sugar, water, cinnamon stick and  fresh lemon thyme sprigs in a medium saucepan over medium heat, without boiling, until sugar dissolves.
