1/2 cup Florida pineberries (about 7 pineberries) plus 2 whole ones for garnish
4 ounces Florida vodka
1 tablespoon Florida sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
6 sprigs fresh thyme
3/4 cup sparkling water or club soda
1/2 lime, sliced for garnish
Remove tops from 7 of the Florida pineberries and lightly chop. Add chopped pineberries, 4 sprigs of thyme, lemon juice and sugar to the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Use a muddling stick to mash the pineberry mixture to release all the flavors. Add the Florida vodka and fill the shaker halfway with ice. Place top on the shaker and vigorously shake for at least 30 seconds. Fill two tall collins glasses to the top with ice. Use a cocktail ice strainer to strain the pineberry mixture into the tall glasses filled with ice. Garnish each glass with a whole fresh pineberry, thyme sprigs and a slice of lime. Top each glass with chilled club soda to the top. Drink responsibly.
