Honey is one of nature’s many wonders. A natural sweetener that is both delicious and comforting, honey can appease a sore throat and take a gin cocktail to a whole new level. Today, we will be teaching you how to make a gin cocktail with honey syrup. (And no, you don’t need to have a sore throat to make this wonderful cocktail!)

But before doing so, let’s take a quick look at the list of ingredients that you will need:

2 ounces of gin

1/2 ounce of fresh lemon juice

1/2 ounce of honey syrup 

Ice

To make the honey syrup, simply mix equal parts honey and water. Stir until the honey has dissolved and keep refrigerated until you are ready to prepare your gin cocktail.

Making a gin cocktail with honey syrup is not much more complicated than this, although keep in mind that you will need to purchase a cocktail shaker if you do not own one already. Once you have all the ingredients at hand, pour the gin, the lemon juice and the honey syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes. Shake until the exterior of the cocktail shaker has started to frost over — usually about 30 seconds or so. Strain into cocktail that have been previously chilled and enjoy! If needed, you may add a teaspoon or two of sugar to sweeten the deal.

As usual, don’t forget to share the awesomeness and to take a look at the other awesome recipes that can be found on our blog! :)
