How to Make a Simple Honey Syrup

If you plan on crafting the cocktails that we make below, you will need to craft a simple honey syrup in order to make some of them. Luckily, it is really easy to make!


  • 1 part Hot Water (doesn’t need to be boiling)
  • 2 parts Honey


Add ingredients and stir until honey is incorporated.

When you make a simple honey syrup, it is important that you use hot water. The water doesn’t need to be over 100 degrees, it just needs to be warm enough to help loosen the honey up when mixing it with water.
