Honey Syrup

IMG_5199

This is a simple syrup for cocktail purposes, because pure honey does not dissolve in cold drinks.  In fact, it is what one would call a “rich simple syrup”, because the amount of sweetener is twice the amount of water.  I keep mine in a squeezy bottle because that’s how the pros do it (I made that up but I don’t think I’m wrong).

Rich Honey Syrup

Yield: About 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients:

1 c. Honey

1/2 c. Water

Method:

Place the honey and water in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.  Stirring occasionally, heat it until the honey is fully dissolved in the water, possibly to a simmer if necessary.  Cool to room temperature and then store in the refrigerator!
