It’s crazy hot here even though I’m ready for lovely, mild autumn weather. Honey is the perfect ingredient to bridge the weather’s seasonal confusion disorder. The sweetness of honey works well in refreshing summer drinks as well as spiced fall concoctions. So I found a few honey drinks that would be equally appropriate for sweltering heat and pleasant fall temperatures. You can even make your own honey liqueur for the occasion.
The Lazy Boy ~Bourbon, figs, ginger, and honey. What’s not to love about this cocktail?
Honey Rum Fizz ~ This drink is sort of like a honeyed Mojito with the added texture and silkiness of egg white. Fresh, sweet, foamy … and refreshing.
Honey Rye ~ The spicy kick of rye is balanced with honey liqueur and ginger ale. Add a few dashes of orange bitters and you have a drink that’s good for a heat wave or a crisp fall day.
Campari Dolce ~ We know honey goes well with sweet and spicy, but it’s also a good match for bitterness. Add honey to gin and Campari for a complex and unique cocktail.
