Herb & Honey Cocktail Creations With Recipes

Honey is an all-natural and delicious sweetener that works just as well as (if not better than) sugar — especially in your cocktail creations. If you’re looking to up your at-home mixology game, try making honey cocktails!

Get mixing and figure out what flavors you like best with honey! There are so many types of honey, each with a unique flavor and appeal.

PRO TIP: Honey can be very sweet and varies seasonally. Test your honey every time you mix with it, and use herbs to balance out the intense sweetness!
