Mint Julep with Honey Simple Syrup

Mint Julep with Honey Simple Syrup

 

Looking forward to the weekend? If you like to finish your week off with a cold beverage, then we have the perfect recipe for you. Whether it be a cocktail or mocktail, we love to substitute Stakich Raw Honey for sugar whenever we make a beverage that requires sweetener. It's also a great addition to your favorite iced tea or lemonade!

Simple Syrup Directions

Making the simple syrup is actually very simple! All you need to do is heat equal parts Stakich Raw Honey and water in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until the honey has completely dissolved. Then remove the saucepan from the heat and allow to cool.

Pour syrup into a glass jar and refrigerate. Then use as needed.
