Why It’s Important to Make a Simple Syrup

So this recipe calls for honey as the sweetener. You might be wondering why you need to make a simple syrup at all, since honey is liquid. But trust us, honey by itself won’t mix directly into any cocktail. Simple syrup is basically just water and sugar cooked together to create a liquid sweetener that easily dissolves in other liquid, and in this case, we’re swapping the typical sugar for honey!

Notes

To Make the Honey Simple Syrup: To make a simple syrup you simply combining 1 part water to 1 part sweetener. Then, bring it up to a boil. Once it’s boiling, give it a good stir and then shut off the heat. You now have simple syrup! It will, of course, need to cool before use. Leftover simple syrup will keep for 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Alternatively, you can use Mint Simple Syrup in this beverage for a fun twist!
