Honey Simple Syrup is an easy magical concoction often used in cocktails, similar to the Sugar Simple Syrup bartenders always use. It adds sweetness and complexity and is a key ingredient to many cocktails. Different types of honey have different strengths and flavor varieties. Use them according to the cocktail you’re making. Milder honey works best with brighter cocktails, while richer and earthier types are good for dark-spirit drinks.
The preparation for honey syrup is quite like the regular simple syrup. All you need to do is mix honey and water into a saucepan on medium heat and stir until dissolved. Let it cool and transfer it into an airtight container which you should keep in the fridge. One month of shelf life guaranteed.
The 2:1 ratio is best for a milder type of honey. It’s important to always taste the honey before you make your Honey Syrup.
Ingredients and preparation:
- Add equal parts of honey and water into a saucepan on medium heat. (you can always adjust to your taste)
- Stir until the honey is dissolved and let it cool.
- Transfer into an airtight container and put it in your fridge.
- You now have Honey Syrup. 😉
- Have fun and enjoy.
