For most cocktails, this  thinned honey syrup is preferable to honey itself, which is too viscous. You can add other flavors to the syrup while you heat it: lavender, rosemary, and jalapeño are all great additions.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup water

Directions

In a small saucepan, warm honey and water over medium heat until they are well incorporated; do not boil.

Let the syrup cool completely before using.

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
