Basic Honey Syrup Recipe

The Basics: Honey Syrup

If simple syrup's a very regular part of your bar repertoire, then you might want to consider adding honey syrup into the mix.

Use the basic recipe to sweeten everything from tea to sorbet to mojitos, or infuse it with different herbs if you're in the mood to go crazy. For the no-recipe recipe, read on.
