Honey Syrup Recipe

Honey Syrup Recipe

Honey is sweet, rich, and aromatic which makes it perfect for cocktails. What’s not perfect is how thick it is, making it difficult to properly portion and incorporate into a yummy beverage. By mixing honey with a little water it becomes easy to measure and thinning it out will help incorporate into cold cocktails without seizing up in your shaker tin. It’s super easy to make, a great substitute for simple syrup in an array of cocktails, and stores for about a month in the fridge.
