First off, this recipe is absolutely delicious! It’s a rather unlikely combination in a way, as drinks using honey are somewhat unusual. One that comes to mind is mead, a very ancient drink made from honey, spices and water, among other ingredients, then fermented.
Mead is fairly difficult to come by for the most part, although it may be more popular in England. This cocktail from our sister site Mother Earth News makes use of honey simple syrup, and simple to makeit is!
