Simple syrup, whether it’s made with honey or sugar, tends to be made in a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio with water. I make my clover honey simple syrup with a 1:1 ratio. The batch below can be kept in one jar in the fridge but you can easily make larger batches if desired. Simple syrup is great to have around for making lemonade, limeade or any assortment of cocktails or mocktails. Since honey is an animal product, many vegans don’t eat it. Further, some people are allergic to honey. If you use it in a cocktail, be sure you let your guests know, no matter whether you’re a bartender or a home-mixmaster.
2 cups water
2 cups clover honey
- Mix honey and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat until the liquids are combined.
- When cool enough, add to a glass jar and store in the refrigerator.
