HONEY COCKTAILS

 http://themartinidiva.com

Honey is one of my favorite sweeteners. If it's possible to replace simple syrup, sugar or any other sweetener with honey in a cocktail I will do it. It's all natural and it keeps literally forever. As a healthy cocktail sweetener it's second to none for adding that essential balance for any spicy, sour, and bitter elements. If you can get lovely flavored honeys like those I've been kindly gifted from Honey Ridge Farms, it adds additional flavor as well. You can even buy honey wine, called Mead, very popular back in the good old Medieval days and making a huge comeback in today's craft cocktail scene.

I always keep a jar of local honey for allergy season but I end up using it more for cocktails then for sneezing. Because honey is so healthy I have created so many cocktails using it that I'll probably miss some on this list, so feel free to use my search option to find them all and don't be afraid to replace other sweeteners with honey in your favorite cocktails. By thinning it with warm water you can create a very healthy alternative to most simple syrups, just remember that any honey brings it's own distinctive flavor to the cocktail profile.
