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!
